|If you're nasty and you know it, raise your hand!|
Based on the news of the day, I picked a hell of an election year to stop being a blackout drunk. Apparently, the competition between GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and second place Senator Ted Cruz has devolved from a race to see who could offer a more disturbingly bad game plan for addressing terrorism in Europe, to juvenile sexism and now, a tabloid tale about Cruz being a serial adulterer.
Damn, that's distasteful to think about. Naturally, Cruz alleges that this is some of the Trump campaign's nasty handiwork, which has some merit, as this level of ratfucking is a Roger Stone specialty and National Enquirer's CEO David Pecker and Donald Trump go back a ways. But there's some possibility that this salacious story has Team Rubio's entirely normal sized fingers all over it.
Given that Marco Rubio is no longer in the race, that's not so much a matter of strategic story-placement, as a delightful display of positively personal animus. Still, I wonder...
As Senator Cruz is a family man and I'm just a humble blogger, I've only got so much freude to schaden over the story, except to say that in a match-up with a grandiose braggart whose digit-measuring borders on the obsessive, there is one person who might actually benefit from a rumor that Ted Cruz is getting busy like a one-legged man at an ass-kicking contest--
Think about that for a minute.
As to the idea that it's absurd to think Ted Cruz actually can or does get more tail than a peacock ranch, friends, I can't even. But as Kissinger once said, "Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac" and rolling up on the honeys with "Hi, I'm a US Senator" might work with the congress-groupies. I. Guess. Probably. Exist. Hmm. Also, preacher's kids, right? and something about the biggest sexual organ is the brain.
I reserve judgment. I have the feeling I may need it later. After all, holier than any of y'all Ted Cruz has accepted the endorsement of every homophobic bigot you could shake a stick at. And while the Ten Commandments refrains from mentioning gay folks, it does bother to list adultery as a big no-no.
As with train wrecks and people with something nasty hanging off their face, one both wants to look away, and can't.
