And the "Don't Sugarcoat It" award of the day goes to totally sober (okay, probably not, but whatever) former House Speaker John Boehner who told an audience at Stanford University what he really thinks of Carly Fiorina's running mate. Via

Boehner's description of Ted Cruz, who Boehner worked with in Congress? “Lucifer in the flesh,” Boehner said, according to the Daily. “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

Don't have much to add to that, except have another Rusty Nail, Mister Speaker.
