It's not very often that those of us writing for C&L will embed a Wochit video, or a "Fox and Friends" tweet (h/t Mediaite, because yeah, I never check the Fox and Friends twitter stream this early on a Monday):

But these are strange days on the campaign trail, and Ted Cruz going straight for the spanking reference, AGAIN. Earlier this year he was telling voters to spank Hillary Clinton at the ballot box. I mean, Ted Cruz is creepy sitting there saying nothing, but knowing that his brain goes to the "spank" word on even an irregular basis? What's his safe word? Oh nevermind, Twitter has it.

And let's not forget the young man who heckled Cruz in Indiana, of all places. Little Ronny Howard in the Music Man, he's not.

Can you help us out?
