|World Famous Izak the Goat, Dover NH|
Of course in one breath, Canadian Senator Ted Cruz representing Texas gave a fire and brimstone political speech worth of a 19th century tent revival snake oil salesman and scares a poor three year in the audience half to death. All the while avoiding the symbol of Satan and or his Cubano Dad – that of a goat – famous for chewing on politicians who come to visit the little people in New Hampshire every four years or so.
Senator Ted "the United Nations is trying to invade the U.S. and enslave us all" Cruz isn't one to tone down his rhetoric for anybody. That includes a confused, terrified three-year-old in New Hampshire who didn't understand that Uncle Ted's fire and brimstone language isn't meant to be literal….
CNN also notes, delightfully, that Cruz "snubbed a goat" on his way out the door. Bill Higgins waited outside for several hours with his goat Izak for a chance to meet Cruz. (The goat's main claim to fame is that he once bit Jon Huntsman.) Higgins previously failed to introduce Izak to Jeb Bush, and the Washington Post reports that Cruz also didn't seem to want anything to do with the goat, saying hello to Higgins several times but not pausing to pet Izak.
