"At this point, watching Donald Trump calling Ted Cruz the worst liar he’s ever seen and implying that he’s got a mental disorder doesn’t even phase the press. That’s just Trump being Trump. But it is noteworthy that Marco Rubio’s supposedly “high road” campaign is tarring Cruz with the same message. Even poor old Ben Carson gets in on the act, fulminating over Cruz’s alleged “dirty trick” in Iowa in which some of his campaign workers phoned into the caucuses with a bogus report that Carson was dropping out of the race and told them to vote for Cruz instead."
Sorry, Digby, but what you should really be spending your energy on is the fact that they are right- Cruz is a compulsive liar, and does have a clear mental disorder, and yet a large number of Republican leaders and people in the press still insist on portraying him as a legitimate choice to be a national leader.
In fact the whole Republican party consists of compulsive liars with mental disorders, but everyone wants to pretend that it's all okay. Why, isn't stoking hatred and inciting violence the way that our country always picked its leaders? Nothing to see here- both parties are the same, right? Hillary is just the same as Cruz, except for that minor mental disorder issue, and the compulsive liar thing, so you might just as well vote for one as for the other. Then, when Cruz is elected (because no Republican is ever going to fall for the "both parties are the same" crap) we can have Phil Robertson as our U.N. ambassador, and I guess, Cliven Bundy on the Supreme Court, and the Koch brothers as joint secretaries of the Treasury and Labor. That will make the country run just great, if by great, you mean, crash into a burning mess and disappear from world history for all time, to be replaced by a bunch of tinhorn dictatorships, and maybe if we are lucky, a few sane areas on the coasts. Well, maybe that's what we deserve.
