The GOP clown car is about to officially begin to make its slow descent on Washington, DC as the wacko bird from Texas, Senator Ted Cruz will do us the honor of announcing his presidential bid on Monday.

Houston Chronicle:

Sen. Ted Cruz plans to announce Monday that he will run for president of the United States, accelerating his already rapid three-year rise from a tea party insurgent in Texas into a divisive political force in Washington.

Cruz will launch a presidential bid outright rather than form an exploratory committee, said senior advisers with direct knowledge of his plans, who spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement had not been made yet. They say he is done exploring and is now ready to become the first Republican presidential candidate.

The senator is scheduled to speak Monday at a convocation ceremony at Liberty University in Virginia, where he is expected to declare his campaign for the presidency.

This is going to be so much fun to watch and cover for you guys. And you know he's going to go full-on Conservative crazy. We can only hope he comes out with a 9-9-9 Herman Cain type economic plan real soon.

Senior advisers say Cruz will run as an unabashed conservative eager to mobilize like-minded voters who cannot stomach the choice of the "mushy middle" that he has ridiculed on the stump over the past two months in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
