I rounded up the best tweets of last night’s debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump for The Federalist.
After his brave non-endorsement at the Republican Convention in July, Ted Cruz has knelt before Zod and endorsed Donald Trump. There’s plenty of virtual ink spilled over the reasons and the effects–Ben Domenech’s article yesterday is a good place to start–so I won’t rehash them.
But I will add a few personal thoughts. I didn’t see this coming. Cruz’s strength (and weakness) has always been his willingness to stand on principle. When he refused to endorse Trump in front of a screaming crowd of Trumpites in Cleveland, I thought that would be the end of it. Given Trump’s slanderous personal abuse of Cruz, his wife, and his father, I thought I had good reason to think so.
Of the 2016 Republican candidates, only Jeb Bush and John Kasich have not endorsed. Good for them.
Today at The Hardball Times, I wrote about what it would take to hit .400 in modern Major League Baseball.
