After formally declaring himself a presidential candidate today - in a speech aired in its entirety on Fox - Ted Cruz will get a little campaign assist from the GOP's most reliable 2016 TV cheerleader, Sean Hannity.
According to an announcement I heard on Fox, Cruz will be Hannity's guest for a full hour of campaigning interviewing.
The only question: Will Hannity be sporting pompoms or just slobbering?
You said it, Steve St. John!
Since it seems likely that Palin won’t be running at least our comedians have been gifted and blessed with her male counterpart.
Let the comedy begin!
Btw, just in case FOX “news” didn’t tell its viewers about one of the reasons why Cruz chose Liberty U for his announcement…a guaranteed large audience as student attendance is mandatory. NYT and the LAT both are reporting the “manadatory attendance” as well.
“I strongly object to Senator Cruz’s choice of venue for the announcement of his 2016 presidential bid: as is well-known by Liberty University students but considerably less well-known by the general public, all students are required to attend convocation every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Sen. Cruz is a friend of the Liberty University administration and has spoken at convocation in the past. As such, he knows that all students are required to be in attendance. I bear no ill will toward Sen. Cruz, but his choice to announce his 2016 presidential bid at convocation at Liberty University is a starkly deceptive one. Should the general public be unaware that all students are required to attend convocation, it would seem to the average viewer (as this will be televised and is already being widely publicized) that 10,000 supporters came to Liberty University to hear Sen. Cruz’s announcement. However, every student in attendance has no say in the matter. Students will either attend convocation and lend to the illusion of widespread support for Sen. Cruz, or they will be subject to administrative punishment—specifically, four reprimands and a $10 fine—if they are absent. While Sen. Cruz has every right to run for president and to announce his candidacy, it is a highly deceptive, albeit politically savvy, move on Sen. Cruz’s part to make his big announcement here. I do not support this action, and I am not alone in my belief that such deception is wrong.”
