DATELINE: Mates Out to Keep on Running
In the world of entertainment politics, Ted Cruz continues to clear every room he enters.
We have seen Ted Cruz lookalikes everywhere we turn nowadays, and the idea is not comforting. Recently, Jerry Springer brought forth a woman who looks like she was separated at birth from her Siamese Twin, Ted Cruz. No, it wasn’t Kaitlyn Jenner.
However, the recent selection of a new partner, a teammate, a marriage of political interests, has created more fodder for the grist mill. We can only hope the saw mill will make splinters of the latest couple.
Yes, Ted Cruz selected Carly Fiorina as his running mate. This is not quite on par with Huntley-Brinkley, or even Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley.
While pondering this matchup, we had visions of the Tin Woodman marrying the Wicked Witch of the West. It might seem like a horror only possible in Munchkinland, or in the GOP.
Yet, there he was the man who won the contest to resemble Grandpa Munster teaming up with Grandma Addams.
We could only see Mr. Haney teaming up with Arnold the Pig from Green Acres. As Sarah Palin once said, you can put lipstick on a pig, but you still have Mr. Haney and his running mate.
Donald Trump called the new couple of power seekers, “Cute.”
We can only speculate that Hilary Clinton may be motivated to pick husband Bill as her running mate.
