If you're looking for a reason to cringe for about half a minute straight (and who isn't?), you're in luck. Because here's a grainy video from 1988 of 18-year-old high school senior Ted Cruz answering questions about his goals for the future. After a stupid joke about "aspirations" being "the sweat on [his] butt," he goes on to say he'd like to be in a "teen tit film" (sorry, a what?) before getting relatively serious and saying he'd like to, "Take over the world. World domination. You know, rule everything. Rich, powerful, that sort of stuff.”
