In America the Republican party has become a complete and utter circus.
Trump and Cruz (and/or their “independent” PACs) had already hit new lows by sniping at each other’s wives.
In a new development last night (NZ time, ht Thurston in comments) news broke of a “National Enquirer” report that Ted Cruz has had multiple extramarital affairs (on Twitter see #CruzSexScandal). The NE is a rubbish source of course, but either this is true (a tweet from a Washington Times reporter gives some support, Cruz denies it of course), or it is false, in which case the story may be a Trump plant (Trump seems to be cozy with NE). Either way the Republicans are a complete laughing stock.
Of course we didn’t need this circus to tell us that these people are nuts. Any party that fields a bunch of presidential candidates that largely deny the significance of human induced climate change is unfit to govern. Stick a fork in the Republicans, they are done.
