Today’s New York Times story about Ted Cruz selecting Carly Fiorina as his potential running mate has drawn nearly 1,800 comments.
Some are priceless…One commenter called Cruz’ gambit “the political equivalent of a student pulling a fire alarm to avoid an exam.”
Here is a sampling of other comments:

If Ted Cruz loses Indiana, he will pick his cabinet.

To the Cruz team, this is a brilliant strategy to siphon off women voters.
Cruz should have borrowed Romney’s binders of women and looked a little harder.

So Captain Cruz now has his First Mate on the Good Ship Titanic.
Cruz picked Fiorina because she’s a woman with name recognition. He would have done as well if he had Lorena Bobbit!

You’ve got to admit, Cruz and Fiorina kind of deserve one another.

Carly Fiorina…Cntrl Alt Delete
Let’s finish with this…My friend Dan Margolies, editor of KCUR’s Heartland Health Monitor, told me recently he had come up with the perfect adjective to describe Cruz: Oleaginous.
If you don’t know exactly what it means, and don’t want to go to “The Free Dictionary,” just think “oleo.”
