Not only did the announcement leave many wondering if someone born in Canada, as Cruz was, is eligible to run for president, but it raises a larger question of why Republicans seem to be drawn to candidates that seem more like cheap caricatures of hideous villains than human beings. I thought maybe the resemblance was just an unfortunate coincidence, but then there's this...
|Grima Wormtongue, from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, as imagined in the 1980 Ralph Bakshi animated movie Return of the King. A dead ringer for Ted Cruz in both depictions, which leads one to believe that Cruz just typifies the underlying concepts of being a sycophant, flatterer, liar, and manipulator that Tolkien was writing about. |
Cruz might not rise to the level of "A frothy mixture of lubricant and fecal matter as an occasional byproduct of anal sex" that Rick Santorum did, but there appears to be every chance he ends up being a punchline, which would be funny, if he weren't be taken seriously by many as a candidate to run the most powerful nation in the world.
Please, steal the idea, but by no means borrow it. I see the interwebs already did. Again.
