The only thing scarier than a Donald Trump presidency is without a doubt, the prospect of a Ted Cruz presidency. While Donald Trump attracts angry, frustrated white men who dream of being millionaires, Ted Cruz's demographic is a whole lot freakier and should put the fear of God into any sane person living in America.
Want proof? Just take a look at Cruz's biggest fan and latest lifeline to a campaign being battered pillar to post by Donald Trump:
Yes ladies and gentlemen, Glenn Beck is Ted Cruz's ace in the sleeve -- a crackpot conspiracy theorist more deranged than Cruz himself, and man so close to the edge that he is about to leave America for Israel because he believes End-of-Days is near. Reported CNN of the new alliance:

Instead, they need a fundamentalist evangelist who doesn't believe in evolution, doesn't believe in climate change, doesn't believe in a woman's right to choose, wants to repeal Obamacare, will abolish the Fed if he gets in, and is so unpleasant most of this own party hates him. This of course, is no big deal to Glenn Beck, who apparently thinks Cruz is the greatest thing since sliced bread:
Be afraid America, be very afraid.
