Some Choice - a "Shady, Bombastic Liar" or a Really Scary, Radical "Social Conservative"

Channel surfing the American nets in the aftermath of Super Tuesday was interesting in a mildly stomach-churning way. Trump was, well, Trump - the New York Times editorial board pretty much summed it up when it labeled him a "shady, bombastic liar." He certainly didn't let them down yesterday.

Then I managed to catch the address of radical social conservative, Ted Cruz. Wowser. The first great moment comes at the 4:00 mark where Cruz energizes his supporters by channeling - wait for it - Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy. Hilarious.

The rest of Cruz' speech was the expected batshit crazy, radical social conservative rant. I don't think I've read of anything this deranged since the collapse of the Weimar Republic.

I thought you were talking about choice between Trump or Clinton.

Z, don't get me started on that one. For now, Trump and Cruz are bad enough.
