Distracted walking and Vision Zero

Ted Cruz: Right-wing creep

Kevin Drum on Repug candidate Ted Cruz's latest ad: "Today's test: one of these men is an illustration from a Nazi propaganda poster. The other is the president of the United States. Can you tell which is which?"

Cruz is leading in Iowa:

If Cruz is the eventual Repug nominee, we could be looking at an historic Democratic Party landslide in November, like LBJ buried Barry Goldwater in 1964. Cruz is not only a right-wing crackpot, he has a face that makes him a good casting choice as the villain in the next James Bond movie. Surely he's too creepy even for the American people?

Right-wing humor: Har, har.
