Samantha Bee says farewell to Ted Cruz


It looks like every late night comedian wants the chance to say a not-so-fond farewell to him and who can blame then? There is something about his smug expression that just begs to be ridiculed. Bee also got Michelle Branch to sing farewell to a montage of the greatest visual hits.

    Cruz floats restarting campaign if he wins Nebraska primary

    Update: he didn’t.

    No, he didn’t. But I think it is appropriate to refer to Cruz as a “floater.” He is sure to surface again.

    LOL funny … but, sadly …

    Reginald Selkirk @4 has it right. I don’t think we have seen the last of Ted.

    I think he was angling for a VP slot from the beginning. The mean language and seeming hard feelings between the Trump and Cruz campaigns would seem to suggest they can’t get along but, then again … we are talking about politicians … right-wing politicians.

    They have a long history of forgetting history, recent or otherwise, and re-framing it all to suit their needs in the present. Trump gets credibility with the party machine and the Christian vote if he brings Cruz on as VP. Richard Viguerie has said as much.

    I’m starting to get the eerie, dreadful feeling like when you know there is going to be a crash and there is nothing you can do about it but watch it unfold. We could end up with my nightmare scenario. Ted Cruz running the country for sixteen years. Eight as the power behind a Trump figurehead, and eight more as president.

    No, no, no … Hell No…

    Someone please tell me there is no way this can happen.

    Someone needs to “take one for the team.” A man needs to have sex with Ted Cruz and get it on video.

    lorn@5,

    No, I don’t think Cruz has the least interest in being Trump’s VP, nor do I think Trump would offer – if he wants a theocrat to attract the religious right, there are plenty to choose from. Rather, Cruz is probably reckoning on Trump losing to Clinton, and running again in either 2020 or 2024, depending on Clinton’s (un)popularity at the former date. Even if Trump wins, he’d have the 2024 option, or 2020 if Trump is bored by then (always assuming, of course, that the world survives a Trump presidency – by no means a foregone conclusion).
