Comment of the Day: Who Is Ted Cruz, Really?

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning or afternoon from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We examined the victory of Tea Partier Ted Cruz over mainstream Republican David Dewhurst for the GOP senatorial nomination. We looked at how Cruz has some impressive academic credentials, and how he, ummm, somehow thinks the UN is coming after Texas's golf courses, or something like that.

Readers added their two cents.
