Not long after his much-awaited announcement in front of a required attendance audience at Liberty University, Ted Cruz made another announcement. This time seeming a little premature, and well, slightly crazy.
Pretty much assuming he’ll win the Republican nomination for president, Cruz took to social media and his website to announce his running-mate. And who better to choose than a person who will undoubtedly lock down the Christian evangelical vote — Jesus Christ.
Now, I know what you’re thinking — how is this even possible? Jesus hasn’t been alive for thousands of years except in the hearts of those who believe in him. And if you’re not thinking that, you’re thinking — Jesus isn’t even an American citizen nor would ever choose to vote Republican because he cares too much about people. But none of these factors deterred Cruz from moving forward with his announcement.
“After a long afternoon of prayer, and knowing the Lord is on my side in all of this, I’ve chosen Jesus Christ to be my running-mate on the 2016 presidential election ticket,” said Cruz on his Google+ account. “This is a decision that I know is right for me and most definitely for the country. I can’t wait to begin campaigning alongside him.”
