Imagine our surprise when the hardworking staff received an email from GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz (R-Come to Jesus) that began this way:
As one of my closest supporters — I wanted to send a note to say thank you and invite you to be part of a special opportunity.
Not to get technical about it, but what that says is Ted Cruz is one of his closest supporters.
Which, not to get technical about it, is actually true.
Regardless, the email goes on to say this:
Let me explain: as I write this to you today, our campaign is working overtime to secure enough delegates to ensure we win the nomination. While the exact delegate count between the candidates is in constant flux, our wins in Wisconsin and Colorado last week have put us on a path to victory before the convention.
Click here to confirm your Deputy Delegate status, and we’ll mail your official DEPUTY DELEGATE CARD to you.
But you have to act in the next 48 hours — we are working to secure a team of Deputy Delegates all across the country committed to support my candidacy and our drive to secure the 1,237 official delegates needed to win.
Again, not to get technical about it, but “working overtime to secure enough delegates to ensure we win the nomination” is, of course, code for “employing every underhanded tactic we can to ace out Donald Trump and John Kasich.”
But . . . seriously?
Deputy Delegates? Does a decoder ring come with it?
Because otherwise, we’re out.
