Sen. Ted Cruz must still be high off his painfully horrendous Simpsons' impersonations, Cruz now has staked out his pro-gun, whacked out cooking skills.

In a new video, presidential candidate Ted Cruz has manages to combine one of America's near-universal loves with one of its more contentious pastimes: bacon and guns.

"There are few things I enjoy more than on weekends cooking breakfast with the family," Cruz opens the video. Raw bacon and aluminum foil are then wrapped around the barrel of a machine gun at a firing range.

"Of course in Texas, we cook bacon a little differently than most folks," Cruz says.
He fires a number of shots at a target, noting grease dripping on the ground, followed by the big reveal: Cruz unwraps the foil and eats a forkful of bacon, laughing "Mmm, machine-gun bacon."

As the Fox News debate nears, Republicans are acting more like Glenn Beck rodeo clowns than actual people.

Not only is this spot offensive to any normal person in its own right, but it's made even more deplorable by the murders of innocent American civilians with an assist from assault weapons.
