He still wants to be your lover.

This is not a story yr Wonkette ever wanted to write, as we hoped Ted Cruz would soon be absorbed back into the hellish glob of Canadian poutine jizz what barfed him onto America, never to be heard from politically again. Or we at least hoped he'd just go back to the Senate and continue bothering people from there, like he did before the risen Christ whispered to his dry-drunk dad in a dream that it was Ted's destiny to run for president.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]But now he says he might be willing to unzip his suspended campaign and jump back in the ring, but IF AND ONLY IF the corn-husking Republicans of Nebraska beg him nicely, with votes. This all went down on the Glenn Beck radio program:

CO-HOST PAT GRAY: If Nebraska were to somehow ...

GLENN BECK: That's not gonna happen.

GRAY: ... miraculously choose you tonight ...

BECK: Pat's going for the Hail Mary!

GRAY: ... if that happened, would you consider getting back in the race?

FOREIGN-BORN ASSWIPE WITH PUNCHABLE FACE: I am not holding my breath. My assumption is that that will not happen. But listen, let's be very clear, if there is a path to victory, we launched this campaign intending to win; the reason we suspended the race last week is with Indiana's loss, I didn't see a viable path to victory. If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly.

NEBRASKA WINGNUTS, YOU SIT THE FUCK BACK DOWN AND EAT YOUR REUBEN SANDWICHES, which you eat for every meal, because Nebraska is where Reuben sandwiches started!

Of course, Glenn Beck and his idiot pals were all "YAY, Nebraska, go vote for Cruz!" But it wouldn't even matter. Cruz is mathematically eliminated from contention for the Republican nomination, and Nebraska, where 95% of the voters are cows (this statistic may or may not be true) is not going to change that. Ted Cruz ain't gonna come back and save you now, GOP babydolls. You are the party of Trump, and you have to live with that.

And look, we know, with all these dickhead politicians "suspending" their campaigns these days, but never actually ENDING them (so they can keep raising $$$), there's always a teeny chance for somebody to come back all deus ex machina-style and change the course of an entire campaign.

But that is not going to happen here. Ted Cruz didn't "suspend" his campaign for "noble reasons" like that dumbfuck John McCain in 2008, promising to return as soon as he was done fixing America. Cruz fucking quit, because he is a loser.

Besides, didn't that rat bastard just say Monday night he has no intention of challenging Donald Trump's ascension to the great Republican wingnut throne? Yes, he did.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]Cruz's soup-returning wife Heidi told the campaign's National Prayer Team on a conference call Tuesday that Jesus has much bigger plans for them than this piddly-ass 2016 election, and sometimes it takes longer than you'd expect for God to make Ted Cruz president. Remember how long it took God to abolish slavery? NO FOR REAL SHE MADE THAT COMPARISON, and we are even more worried for her mental health than we were before:

“I don’t want you to feel like any of this was in vain," Heidi Cruz said. "I believe in the power of prayer. This doesn’t always happen on the timing of man, and God does not work in four-year segments."

"Be full of faith and so full of joy that this team was chosen to fight a long battle," she continued. "Think that slavery — it took 25 years to defeat slavery. That is a lot longer than four years."

Girl! GIRL. GIRL! Listen to yr Wonkette, Heidi. We care about you. It is time for you to go to the beach and kick your feet up and drink about a thousand gallons of bloody marys and read yourself some Eat, Pray, Love or 50 Shades Of Butt Stuff or whatever the ladies are reading this summer, and forget about him!

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]OK fine, you don't have to divorce him if you don't want to (UNLESS HE REALLY DID BONE ALL THOSE LADIES, IN WHICH CASE GET OUT), but you two bag o' dicks ain't never gonna live in the White House, because God didn't choose him for SHIT.

Give it up, Heidi. For your own sanity, and for America, even if that isn't your husband's native homeland.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
