Cruz rises to top as Rubio and Trump wallow in mud at GOP debate

Donald Trump assured the nation last night that his manhood was sufficient for the White House.

"Look at those hands -- are they small hands?" he told the audience at Fox News Channel Republican Presidential Debate. "And he referred to my hands -- if they're small, something else must be small. I guarantee there's no problem. I guarantee it."

You know -- as awkward as that moment was for families across the fruited plain -- just be glad nobody whipped out a measuring stick.

Thursday night's debate featured uncivil behavior from the Republicans -- sophomoric and crass -- bordering on obscene.

Sen. Marco Rubio behaved like a petulant child. Donald Trump flipped and flopped so many times that he flopped back to the positions he originally flipped on.

The only person on that stage who looked and sounded presidential and has a shot at getting elected -- was Sen. Ted Cruz.

He stayed out of the locker room name-calling and focused on the issues.

Senator Cruz understands the problems facing our great nation are no laughing matter.

But Senator Rubio and Mr. Trump seem to think it's all a great big dirty joke.
