Republican weirdo presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, a.k.a. "Lucifer in the flesh," is facing his Waterloo - or he would be if Indiana had a town named Waterloo. Dammit, I just checked, it does. Waterloo, Indiana, population 2,242 or 666 of something like that.
Okay, back on track (and, yes, Waterloo boasts that Amtrak stops there several times every day). No, not that sort of track. Ted Cruz track. It seems that Indiana may be the end of the line (sorry) for Ted's presidential aspirations. He appears poised to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory virtually yielding the Republican nomination to Donald "Juice" Trump.
Last night Stephen Colbert explained that, "To know Cruz is to wish you didn't."
Poor old Ted, can't catch a break. He just creeps people out and, it seems, for good reason. Months ago somebody floated the meme of Cruz as the Zodiac Killer. On February 25th, Public Policy Polling released its forecast of the Republican and the Democratic Florida primaries. The polling report included this paragraph:
Finally we find that 38% of Florida voters think it's possible that Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer. 10% say he for sure is, and another 28% say that they are just not sure. Cruz is exonerated from being a toddler serial killer by 62% of the Sunshine State populace.
Update: Zodiac Cruz has succumbed under the weight of the Trump juggernaut, a vanquished man. It's just a feeling but I had a sense that reality settled in on Ted Cruz over the past few weeks as he began to realize that virtually no one likes him. It wasn't just a jealous snit by his fellow senators. It's the whole damn country. He seemed to be just a bit relieved that it's over. Then again, so am I.
