    I only have one question; and, I’m pretty sure there isn’t an answer that would make me comfortable.

    How did someone with Cruz’s political instincts ever get elected in the first place?

      That’s a metaphysical question, I’m afraid, and a toxic one at that, Since I’ve been living in AZ for the past 17 years, though, which has exposed me on a daily basis to exactly such metaphysical questions, I’m willing to hazard an answer.

      The folks who elected Cruz believe that they’re an embattled master race, and that the rest of us have stolen their patrimony. They want nothing less than to stop the world and make us get off. Cruz has promised he can help them with that, and they believe him. Nothing else matters.
