Following on the heels of a humiliating five state loss this week, Senator Ted Cruz has become a desperate man. Of course, we all know how desperate people are inclined to commit desperate, not to mention stupid, acts. Cruz not only lost every primary contest this past Tuesday but also came in dead last in 4 out of 5 states, a very ominous sign for a man whose father once proclaimed that his son had been chosen by God to be America’s 45th President.
Cruz also came under heavy fire this week for his so-called “dark alliance” with Republican nominee John Kasich, where both candidates promised to work together in a sad, last-ditch effort to prevent the GOP front-runner, Donald Trump, from obtaining the necessary 1237 delegates needed to ensure the Republican nomination.
The Cruz/Kasich alliance plays like the plot of a bad comic book where The Joker and The Riddler put aside their differences to team up to destroy Batman, a feat neither supervillain is smart enough to accomplish alone. Naturally, the alliance failed miserably when Ted Cruz doubled down on his plan to foil Trump, and John Kasich backpedaled and distanced himself from the scheming Texan Senator, leaving Cruz in an even more precarious political position than he was in before.
Now that Cruz has virtually no mathematical possibility of winning the nomination outright, it would seem prudent for him to bow out gracefully and admit defeat. Instead, Cruz has chosen to jump the shark and announce his VP pick, proving once again that Ted Cruz hates reality almost as much as he hates Obama, Democrats, and government.
At a rally in Indianapolis on Wednesday, the evangelical Senator officially announced Carly Fiorina would be his running mate should his delusions come true and he makes it to the general election. Addressing his supporters, Cruz stated,
After a great deal of consideration and prayer, I have come to the conclusion that if I am nominated to be president of the United States that I will run on a ticket with my vice presidential nominee Carly Fiorina,
Cruz then went on to praise Fiorina, proclaiming,
Carly is brilliant and capable, and yet she experienced the hardscrabble world of being a female professional,
And went on to add,
Over and over again, Carly has shattered glass ceilings. But in addition to being a woman of extraordinary experience, she’s also a woman of deep principle.
Fiorina then joined Cruz on stage to make her acceptance speech a speech that started off stern,
This is the fight of our time, and I believe Ted Cruz is the man to lead that fight. And I am prepared to stand by his side and give this everything I have to restore the soul of the party, to defeat Donald Trump, to defeat Hillary Clinton, and take our country back.
But things then took an odd turn when Fiorina started singing to the Cruz children,
I know two girls that I just adore. I’m so happy that I can see them more. ‘Cause we travel on the bus all day, we get to play. We get to play.
Whether or not Cruz is sincere in his admiration for Fiorina, or this is just a scheme to use both a female and a political outsider to lure away Trump and Clinton supporters, is yet to be seen. They say politics make for strange bedfellows, and nothing may be stranger than a possible Cruz/Fiorina ticket this coming November.
