Ted Cruz has now had since last November to give thought to his opening salvo against Beto O’Rourke, who has out raised Cruz every reporting period.

Well, here’s Cruz’s opening salvo and you can tell that Cruz put every bit of his creativity and thought into it.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s first shot at his expected Democratic challenger, Rep. Beto O’Rourke? Mocking his name.

As Tuesday’s primaries were closing, Cruz’s campaign released a 60-second radio ad that was a country music jingle prodding O’Rourke for going by “Beto” rather than “Robert.” “Liberal Robert wanted to fit in, so he changed his name to Beto and hid it with a grin,” the song says.

Okay, so let me see if I have this right. A man named Rafael Edward Cruz who was born in Canada makes fun of somebody’s name?

That’s your best shot, Cruz? Dude, buy a mirror.
