I haven’t written yet about Ted Cruz’s rather gutsy move to announce a running-mate before he actually becomes the Republican presidential nominee.
Mainly because I didn’t really know what to make of it. Or what to make of Carly Fiorina’s rather creepy singing to Ted’s children at the announcement.
Stephen Colbert just about nails it though.
“I’m still reeling from the news out of the Ted Cruz campaign. First, that there is still a Ted Cruz campaign….second, that he named a running mate yesterday. That is bold.”
Colbert applauded Cruz’s “huevos rancheros” for choosing a running mate so early in the game, and then proceeded to liken it to the captain of the Titanic announcing a “vice captain” as the ship is going down.
But Colbert saved the most glee to mock Fiorina’s “lullaby” for Cruz’s children: “It’s like Disney gave the wicked stepmother her own song.”
