  •  It's not a joke about Ted Cruz (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    It's a joke on birthers. If Julian Castro had been born in Mexico to American parents under similar circumstances to Cruz, the birthers would be calling him "Juarez Julian"—except they'd mean it, and they'd think him inelligible to run for president.

    The difference is that neither I nor anyone else who occasionally calls him Calgary Cruz thinks Cruz is not elligible to serve as president. That's why it's a joke. The birthers mean what they say. And we make fun of birthers, tea partiers, and other assorted right-wing loons all the time. That's never going to stop.

      is ineligible to serve due to mental instability...

      That said, I doubt his vice president and either the cabinet and/or the congress elected with him would decide to invoke the section 4 of the 25th amendment...
