Sunday News: Sanders Wins in WA, AK, HI; Schapiro on Kaine as Possible Clinton Running Mate


by Lowell

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, March 27.

  • Other than his extremism, bigotry and nastiness, why is Ted Cruz so unlikable? A neurologist (note: I looked this guy up and he donated to George W. Bush, so he’s definitely a Republican!) explains in this month’s Washingtonian.

    “Cruz’s eyebrows – which bend down, not up – seem to repel viewers the most, but there’s plenty else to dislike. Instead of a Duchenne smile, his lips tighten into a straight line, his eyes fail to crinkle, and his forehead doesn’t furrow. When he pontificates, his mouth contorts into a strange O.

    Red flags are everywhere in Cruz’s gestures. He jabs incessantly, nods nonstop, and doesn’t seem to know what to do with his hands. He not only emotes but shows us he’s emoting, as if proudly displaying the tools in his debating-skills box. The result, however, is that he comes across as ill at ease and less than sincere. Or else constipated.”

  • Video: Donald Trump is “completely uneducated about any part of the world”
