Senator Ted Cruz seems a little overexcited about his latest surge in the surreal Republican primary campaign. He’s now running second in Iowa, just behind Donald Trump, and he’s tied with Ben Carson for third in the latest Quinnipiac poll. Asked a question about contraception at an Iowa town-hall meeting. “I have never met anybody, any conservative who wants to ban contraceptives,” he began, calling the notion a “made-up, nonsense example.” He’d have been better off just stopping there, but he couldn’t help himself. “Last I checked, we don’t have a rubber shortage in America. When I was in college we had a machine in the bathroom, you put 50 cents in and voila! So yes, anyone who wants contraceptives can access them, but it’s an utterly made-up nonsense issue.”
Having worked himself up, Cruz then accused other Republicans of not being man enough to take on the “nonsense issue.”
