Ted Cruz Will Be Center Stage in Tomorrow Night's Debate; No Empty Podium to Mock Trump

At the Right Scoop.

By the way, I saw Cruz prosecuting Trump for the non-appearance -- he was really effective.

This might turn out to be a really bad move on Trump's part. Cruz was out of the gates with a really tough and credible attack on Trump for, as he put it, failing to have the "humility" to "stand before" the voters of Iowa and accept their scrutiny and judgment.

Meanwhile, this amuses me: Rubio's supporters, who are ninnies, have all been on the same page, parroting the same claims for months, like they always do. One of their biggest mantras is that "Cruz is a pussy because he won't attack Trump."

Well, Rubio also doesn't attack Trump. Rubes' Boys just wanted to try to make Trump and Cruz attack each other, so that Rubes could just slip into first without doing anything but talking about gran-gran's cigars.

Which frankly is a weird thing to talk about, but whatever.

But now Cruz is really going after Trump pretty damn hard, and Rubes is declining to attack him, calling the matter a "sideshow" and insisting we must talk about "the future" or whatever.

Cruz backer Steve King is also pouring it on Trump, and this Slate writer, who's damn good, says the GOP Establishment is straight-up lying when they claim they prefer Trump to Cruz. They're trying to take out Cruz to clear a path for, you guessed it, Rubez.

Jonah Goldberg notes the Establishment is actually bragging about this to their pals at the New York Times.

"Do they all love Trump? No," Republican lobbyist Richard F. Hohlt told the New York Times. "But there's a feeling that he is not going to layer over the party or install his own person. Whereas Cruz will have his own people there."

It's hard to criticize Limbaugh & Co. for cynically questioning the motives of the establishment when party apparatchiks confess them in the pages of the New York Times.

Oh, and Trump is promising a rival event.

Apparently this event will happen in Des Moines.
