Some fellow wrote a lengthy academic piece a few years ago making a claim we vote for the candidate who comes across as nicest.  The media image of Ted Cruz is anything but nice.  He’s portrayed as shrill and mean-spirited.  As an admirer of Cruz and his great intellect I’d place him among my personal finalists in the Republican Party.  With Jindal out and Paul soon to follow I can find some compelling legal argument to support the Canadian born Cruz.  He isn’t named Bernie or Hillary or Marty is a great place to start.  If nothing else, the video at this link shows us Cruz has a great skill at political satire.

The Senator knows how to generate laughs. Screen grab from linked video.

It’s every bit as good as the Senator making bacon on the firing range.
