6. Someone - of course I forget who - recently compared Cruz' tactics to Lenin

I answered that person that as a lifelong student of Russian history, I'm deeply embarrassed at not having independently noted that myself. But it's true. Cruz won't start a 3rd party. He will wreck as much destruction of the GOP overall as might be required to take full control of it. Never mind what he's doing and certainly would do worse to the rest of us. Sorry, but I can't think of one redeeming virtue he might possess - he's one of the most dangerous persons in our history, and don't expect any tears from me over whatever comeuppance he receives.
