That bad rash has spread to
Bitter Cruzinger, John Hawkins, February 13th
In other words, Cruz thinks he's still in the race for the GOP nomination. And he thought he could turn a win in Nebraska or West Virginia tonight into a relaunched candidacy. It was a signal to his loyal supporters in both states to get out the vote.
A FB exchange, February 17th
I said long ago Cruz's desperate behavior is hurting his reputation for a later run. It is the behavior of someone who never socialized as a kid (ie. never got his butt kicked for going too far on the playground). He lacks the common sense that most people have. That voters have. This lack of this basic childhood event is one reason why he couldn't connect with voters. He's that spoiled kid that we never saw on the playground.
Tonight West Virginia and Nebraska handed Ted Cruz primary/caucus losses #'s 37 and 38 out of a total of 50 so far. (That includes the Colorado and Wyoming primaries that didn't happen.)
Cruz's supporters will tell me tomorrow that he wasn't competing tonight in WV or NE.
But he was.
And he lost.
Cruz. Another bad rash that won't go away.
P.S. At least he beat Kasich this time.
