THE SPEECH CRUZ WISHED HE COULD HAVE GIVEN THE NIGHT BEFORE HE DROPPED OUT OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE
Bluto Blutarsky, played by John Belushi in Animal House, could have given Cruz a lesson on what it takes to overcome daunting odds. Ted’s “logical lying” is not his biggest problem; we all do it to some degree, if we are honest. Ted’s main problem is that he seriously acts like he absolutely believes everything he says.
