Ted Cruz is almost certainly the most aesthetically repulsive figures in American politics (not to mention intellectually and ethically repulsive). He looks like a damned troll emerging from under a bridge, slightly pained by sunshine.

I know emphasizing appearance is shallow—Reagan and Kennedy were both good looking and communicated well, but lousy presidents—but Cruz is just so unsightly, I just don't know how a person like that could get elected to public office. Are Texans legally blind?

It's amazing how much a persons personality affects the way they look to me. I can hardly believe this guy ever got elected but then I remember how awful people are.

The problem for Cruz was that he was revolting on a policy level and all the way down to a personal one. He inspired revulsion in people the way snakes do — in a primal, Jungian way. If you showed a picture of Ted Cruz to a newborn, it would probably start screaming. Probably a quarter of all columns about Ted Cruz feature the authors wrestling with what other, more knowable grotesque he reminds them of. Comedian John Mulaney said his “face looks like the entire movie Dick Tracy pushed together.”

The elements of staggeringly inauthentic humanity or authentic inhumanity started to pile up. His daughter recoiled from him, multiple times. He and his wife embraced in such proximal discomfort that it looked more like the puppets on Spitting Image.

He definitely believes he's Nixon in 1966. Just waiting for his chance to leap back out and smite us all.

Totally. That's why I love that Beto has a serious RFK vibe to him, even some visual similarities. I want a drunk Ted Cruz snarling at reporters when he concedes. After all this time, I deserve that!

I think McConnell is good competition here.

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)

McConnell is generic creepy old white ghoul. Ted Cruz is a failed alien clone of a human being—all the body parts are there but the effect is unnerving.
