Ted Cruz doesn't like how mean the moderators are acting at tonight's Fox News Debate and his fee fees are hurt. He berated the three moderators, mainly Chris Wallace, for asking questions of a combative nature. He doesn't like Wallace pitting candidates against each other. Succinctly, Wallace defended his colleagues' responsibilities as moderators.

WALLACE: It is a debate, sir.

CRUZ: No, no, a debate is actually a policy issue, but I will say this, Gosh! If you guys ask one more mean question, I may have to leave the stage!

Hilariously, that made Marco Rubio thirsty, and he had to take a drink of water.

He continued to proselytize about who would be the best Commander-in-Chief, which means that he wants someone who will pledge to entangle us in as many wars as possible. Cruz believes that no tough questions are required to allow these candidates to lie relentlessly about how preemptive war and hate-mongering make us 'safe,' so stop with the mean questions already, you Fox 'News' bullies!

Can you help us out?
