Could the US election get any crazier?
The former Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, spoke of Ted Cruz:
"Lucifer in the flesh," Boehner told Stanford's David Kennedy, a history professor emeritus, according to the Stanford Daily. "I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life."

Meanwhile, Cruz, thinking he might soon be president, chooses Carly Fiorina as his running mate. Fiorina was the CEO of Hewlett-Packard who ran the company into the ground and then got canned. What a fine team that makes!
Trump, who has vowed to cause trouble at the convention if the Republicans try to deny him the candidacy, would probably pick the equally boisterous Chris Christie as V.P., although he is quite fond of Sarah Palin also.
Interestingly: "Searches for 'Move to Canada' are higher than at any time in Google history".
