Just got this email from the Cruz Campaign:
The Cruz for President campaign today launched a new TV ad, “Conservatives Anonymous,” illustrating how Marco Rubio has betrayed the trust of the American people by breaking his campaign promise to fight amnesty. Instead, once elected, Rubio worked closely with Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer and aggressively fought to pass the Gang of Eight amnesty bill in the Senate. This ad is the first in a series that will soon air focused on how conservatives have been betrayed by their elected officials in Washington, D.C. who fail to keep their promises to fight for conservative principles.

Build your cat a better life
a guest post by John Ridley (h/t Samantha)
We love our cats, but they can be demanding. They want something to scratch, toys to play with and sometimes a nice perch to sit on. So we have decided to look at some of the ways you can make your cat’s, and to a degree your, lives a little more interesting with your own DIY skills. We’ve covered projects aimed at the more experienced DIY person along with some for those who are perhaps a little less confident in their skills. There’s tips for how to make a simple, and easy to clean, litter box for your feline friend. You can discover how to make a cool to look at scratching post and a cat tree that will be lots of fun for your cat. We also know that some cats just like to sit and observe the outside world from the comfort of their own home. With that in mind we put together a guide on how to make a cat perch to give them a view of what’s going on outside their window. Finally there is a very easy to make enrichment toy, to give your cat’s brain a little workout as they play. Each project includes a list of what you need, a guide to what to do and a difficulty level rating to give you an idea of how hard a project is.

Each time I hear Donald Trump complain about the supposed unfairness of the Cruz campaign in the closing moments of the Iowa Caucuses, it’s hard not to be reminded of the knife fight scene from Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid …
Frankly, the Trump Schtick is beginning to wear thin with me. I’m on the record as saying he will get my vote if he wins the nomination, but I’m beginning to doubt if he has the staying power to finish the Primary season, much less mount an effective general election campaign.
If Trump wants to talk about unfairness, then let’s hear him come out for the inclusion of Carly Fiorina in the upcoming ABC debate.

I just saw a video ad put together by a pro-Cruz PAC. It’s really pretty good — especially in this day of increasingly negative media.

The most Republican votes EVER in Iowa went to Texas senator Ted Cruz.
Not bad. Not bad at all.
I’ve listened to the Trump followers for the last couple of weeks, and I’ve gotta say, I’m a little bit surprised. Especially after the endorsement of Sarah Palin, and the late polls suggesting Trump up by 7-10 points. To win this first in the nation test is pretty sweet.
Now, on to New Hampshire.
