Must Have Been Using Bristol's Phone

You know, some days we have to pick through the vast cyber dumpster that is the intertoobz to bring you your daily time wasting bit of useless and ultimately depressing fare from which we draw our belief that the planet would be better off if we just gave it back to the insects, and some days the aforementioned desultory effluvia   wanders right up to us.

This is one of those times.
Ted Cruz is seeking the Republican nomination in Texas for a seat in the U.S. Senate. How do I know this? Former sports reporter, Wasilla mayor, Alaska governor, Bridge to Nowhere fan, GOP vice presidential candidate, bear hunter, television personality, author and political endorsement specialist Sarah Palin called with a tip that Cruz was the man for the GOP. Thank goodness the Cruz campaign directed a robocall to my office of the Topeka Capital-Journal.
For those of you keeping score at home, there is no Topeka in Texas. You can see where this is going.
As if the message from Palin hadn't been received loud and clear, she rang the bell again. "Join me," she challenged. "Choose Cruz for Senate." Still, not certain what an emerging Texas political titan wants from a  registered voter in Kansas.
Now, we really can't think of anything to add to this little demonstration of how far this nation has fallen, except to say that in the last presidential election 59,934,814 people thought this woman was qualified to be within one heart beat of the highest elected office in the land. And the nuclear launch codes.

 If you need us, we'll be down in the basement trying to learn to speak cockroach.
