Ted Cruz Wins the Golden Turd Award

Turd_Golden_AwardTed Cruz wins the Golden Turd Award for his performance as the “Turd In The Punchbowl” at last night’s Republican National Convention.

See The Business Insider for this tasty nugget, “‘Condemned to Republican hell’: Ted Cruz faces GOP knives for anti-Trump message at RNC speech“.

Republicans from all corners of the party scorned Ted Cruz on Wednesday night after the Texas senator delivered a speech before the Republican National Convention that not only failed to endorse nominee Donald Trump but implicitly encouraged audience members not to do so if it would violate Turd_Punchbowl_01their “conscience.”

“Cruz condemned to Republican hell,” conservative-news mogul Matt Drudge tweeted before placing a “HELL’S A-BURNIN'” banner on his popular website.

Ted Cruz – Synonymous For #SnakesAndWeasels

As you all saw, and as reported by Yahoo!News, “Ted Cruz [was] booed lustily as he refuses to endorse Donald Trump“.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz tried to link arms with Republicans at the party’s national convention on Wednesday, but was booed lustily by delegates when he ended his speech without offering Donald Trump his endorsement — or even saying he would vote for the New York billionaire.

Cruz didn’t tell the convention crowd that he plans to vote for Trump. Nor did he ask his supporters, hundreds of whom encouraged him to run for president in four years at an event on Wednesday afternoon, to vote for the newly minted Republican nominee.

Interrupted by chants of “Trump, Trump, Trump,” Cruz paused and said with a smile, “I appreciate the enthusiasm of the New York delegation.”

Kasich Trial Balloon Deflates

From the NY Times, “Ted Cruz-John Kasich Alliance Against Donald Trump Quickly Weakens“.

The temporary alliance between Senator Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio, formed to deny Donald J. Trump the Republican presidential Kasich_Trial_Balloon_Fantasynomination, was already in danger of fraying to the point of irrelevance on Monday, only hours after it was announced to great fanfare.

The agreement, in which the two candidates agreed to cede forthcoming states to one another — Mr. Kasich would, most crucially, stand down in Indiana’s primary on May 3 to give Mr. Cruz a better chance to defeat Mr. Trump there, while Mr. Cruz would leave Oregon and New Mexico to Mr. Kasich — carried the stench of desperation, but initially it seemed like a breakthrough.
