I have been told by a reliable source that this bad lip reading treatment of Ted Cruz is hilarious. I figure if I post it here I'll remember to watch it when I get home later tonight and actually have access to some speakers.
Not to get to political here but I find what's happening over in the Republican party fascinating. Ted Cruz is someone that the Republican Establishment absolutely hated just a couple years ago when he tried to shut down the government over obamacare funding. Ever since Republicans did it to Clinton and lost control of the congress, they're terrified of shutting down the federal government.
But now Ted Cruz looks like he might be the Republican Establishment's savior. No one wants Trump to be the nominee and while he's winning lots of states, if you could combine Rubio and Cruz into some sort of mecha-republican, they have the numbers to beat Trump. The establishment really want Rubio but the problem is Cruz is doing much much better than Rubio. A lot of Cruz supporters like him because he's a maverick, a so-called outsider who works against the establishment. If Cruz were to drop out there's no guarantee that his supporters go to Rubio. Also, why should Cruz drop out? He's in second place, if anyone should drop out it's Rubio.... well really it's Carson and Kasich, those guys are just hanging around hoping to garner enough delegates that they can feel like king makers when the convention rolls around. Actually I'll give Kasich a bit more credit than that. I think Kasich looks at Cruz, Trump and Rubio sees what most Democrats see and in completely indignant that one of those three could end up president.
Like I said up top, fascinating stuff. Also slightly terrifying that Donald Trump could win the republican nominee simply because the other republican candidates are too busy tripping all over each other. This should be seen as a big win for the likes of Hannity, Beck and Fox News. They've spent the last 15 years drumming up all this righteous anger within the party hoping they would see a revolution at the polls. Well, the revolution is here it's just didn't exactly take the form they would have expected.
The worst part of all of this is that out of all the republican candidates Trump has the most progressive tax plan BY FAR. Also he seems to be the candidate most interested in campaign finance reform. How weird is that?
