Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today we learned that Sen. Ted Cruz has a new “non-partisan, fact-driven” coloring book that claims the Affordable Care Act is worse than war because “at least American soldiers have weapons to defend themselves” and will “kill more Americans than died in all U.S. wars since World War II.” As Atrios notes, the book does not mention Sen. Cruz’s teenage indoctrination in radical right-wing theory. And he’s on the shortlist for Time‘s Person of the Year. If Sen. Rand Paul’s wife says “No,” will Sen. Cruz be Gov. Chris Christie’s #1 challenger in 2016?
