I Know You Are But What Am I?

As the world reels from the devastating bomb blasts in Brussels where two Americans, Sascha and Alexander Pinczowski were killed and Justin Stutts and wife Stephanie, both of Kentucky are listing as missing, America is witness to a insane clown show.

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have descended into a festering war of words over their spouses.

The line in the political discourse was crossed after the anti-Trump Super PAC Make America Awesome, ran Facebook ads in Utah ahead of that state’s primary.  The ad featured a photograph of a nearly-nude Melania Trump from a years old photo shoot for GQ magazine.
Cruz responded:
The two continued their Twitter war: 
One of the most notable moments in American politics came in 1988 when CNN’s Bernard Shaw asked Democratic presidential hopeful Mike Dukakis  whether he would support the death penalty if his wife was raped and murdered. When Dukakis didn’t show any anger or signal he would defend her, choosing instead to answer the question from a policy perspective, his run for the presidency ceased to exist.  The perception was if he wasn’t willing to protect his wife could Americans expect him to protect the country.

“Donald, you’re a sniveling coward,” Cruz told reporters Thursday in Dane, WI, forcefully pointing his finger, “Leave Heidi the hell alone.  It’s not easy to tick me off.  I don’t get angry often, but you mess with my wife, you mess with my kids, that’ll do it every time.”

“He ran away from the last debate that was scheduled because he was scared of Megyn Kelly and because he was scared to defend his policies,” Cruz said, referring to a debate Fox News was forced to cancel when he and Kasich pulled out.

“I’m not looking forward to telling the girls why Donald Trump is launching insults and attacks at their mommy,” he said. “I’m not looking forward to that conversation, because it is not acceptable.  Real men don’t try to bully women,” Cruz added.

A furious Cruz said the attacks by Trump were the actions “of a small and petty man who is intimidated by strong women.”

“Real men don’t do that, and Donald is indicating the fear that keeps him up at night when he lashes out with anger,” Cruz said, before hailing his wife as his best friend and love of his life. “Donald should stick with attacking me, because Heidi is way out of Donald Trump’s league.”

This chest-pounding does not make these man-children look strong.  It’s having the opposite effect.  The pissing in the wind from both of them is more pathetic than powerful.

This isn’t g-d 1988.  The machismo these two men are engaged in is embarrassing.  For God’s sake, the world is watching as our president attends a baseball game in a communist country and dance the tango in a country where thousands disappeared under a ruthless dictator.

America has far more grave things to worry about.  These two brats need to grow the hell up; otherwise, everyone loses except the godforsaken Democrats.  It reminds me of Pee Wee Herman endlessly arguing with the neighborhood bully, “I know you are, but what am I?”
