"I'm just here so Jeb Bush looks fine." #TedCruzCampaignSlogans

In case you missed it, Ted Cruz announced he was running for president this morning at a mandatory event for students at Liberty University, the Christian school founded by Jerry Falwell that has banned College Democrats from operating on campus since 2009.

Campaign pledges included ending the IRS, opposing all forms of immigration reform, explicitly denying that pollution can affect the environment, and generally encouraging people to "imagine" situations that sounded good to him.
