An Entertaining Race for President

One thing you can say about the 2016 Republican primaries for President of the United States: it’s entertaining.

Donald Trump may have brought the race for President to new lows, but you must admit he’s been instigated to do so.

Mr. Trump, who defended his manhood in the face of Marco Rubio’s schoolyard taunts, has now been forced to do the same for his wife. And I say kudos to Mr. Trump for his response; he made Ted Cruz pay for that sleazy ad by his Super PAC. How would you feel if your wife’s naked picture was distributed throughout the United States for everyone on the Internet to see?

Ted Cruz’s little bit of theater yesterday, “Stay the hell away from my wife …,” rang hollow because he started the fight, and everyone knows that the lewd photo was distributed with his blessing to run up the score in Utah. Every time his back is to the wall, Mr. Cruz pulls out all stops to save his campaign.

The false rumors about Ben Carson in Iowa, the voting “report card,” even the attempt to tar Marco Rubio when he seemed to show disrespect for the Bible,” these actions show the tactics of a desperate man. And “lyin’ Ted” will say or do anything if he thinks it will improve his chances to win the election.

But it is entertaining.
