DES MOINES — In yesterday evening’s Fox News GOP presidential debate here, testosterone ruled.
With The Donald three miles away raising money for veterans because he is afraid of Megyn Kelly (who obviously has a thicker skin than he does), and with Carly Fiorina elsewhere, Ted Cruz stood in the middle of the bunch. Others hoping to be our next Commander-in-Chief were Rubio, Christie, Carson, Paul, and Kasich.
At the outset, Cruz tried to be a comic, launching a deadpan impression of Trump: “I’m a maniac, and everyone on this stage is fat, stupid and ugly. And Ben, you’re a terrible surgeon.”
Film buffs were so disgusted at Ted Cruz’ lousy acting that they immediately turned off their televisions.
For the rest of the “debate,” the other candidates did their best to beat up on Cruz with, unfortunately, limited success (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/01/republican-debate-2016-donald-trump-gamble-218358#ixzz3ydd7ODvQ).
On Monday, Republican voters in Iowa who feel like going out in the cold and wasting two hours get their chance to indicate their choices for whom they would like to see oppose Hillary in November.
