Twitter Sacks Ted Cruz Over Dallas Cowboys PR Ploy

At face value, Ted Cruz’s Dallas Cowboys stunt is him trying to seem connectable. I’m pretty sure the campaign meeting went something like this: “Remember that time when Obama drank that beer? Heck, I can do that too!”. It is an attempt to appear human, something that most candidates swing and miss on, but it is not exactly getting the type of response the Cruz campaign hoped for. We can’t blame him for trying to appear human, though. After his recent tantrums, it seems that this Canadian golden boy is doomed to be the next “also ran” of the GOP class of 2015.

As we all know, the internet can be pretty unforgiving. We’ve seen how Twitter users treated Mike Huckabee, and now it seems to be Ted Cruz’s turn at the whipping post.

Here are a few choice samples of the hilarious disaster that is Ted Cruz’s attempt at being human using the Dallas Cowboys:

Oh, John P, why shroud your real feelings in such a mysterious message? I think the Dallas Cowboys deserve an apology just for being placed in the same category as Ted Cruz.


I think we can all agree that this is the first sane thing “Donald Trump” has said since, “You’re fired!”

The good news for Ted is, at least someone admits to listening to him!


OSU Bucks Fan posts a bit of a rhetorical question to Ted. What? Politicians work? Oh, you silly boy! Besides, don’t you know watching a Dallas Cowboys game is a punishment far greater than work?

You know your Dallas Cowboy idea is bad when even your fan base points it out to you.

This is something I am sure we can all agree on too. I can’t even find Dallas Cowboy fans who would go just for the free game.
