It feels redundant to put any text here. I have seen the Ted Cruz announcement and he was almost fractally unlikeable by my lights. Oh, he kinda talks a good fight on a very few things, but most of them are things the President hasn't got the power to do.
Mr. Mencken still snickers.
If you are a religious conservative, he may be your man. That's fine. I'm not and he isn't.
(Sidebar: Ted Cruz is caricature-ready, from the slicked-back hair to the slicked-back accent, and as a result, I predict he will be a media darling for several weeks while they work out the best angles for his skewering and figure out who on the SNL cast will play him. It will be interesting to see how he takes it.)
