It's terrible to watch bad things happen to good people, and extremely satisfying to watch bad things happen to Ted Cruz.
Videos posted on Twitter Monday evening show protesters heckling Cruz as he and his wife, Heidi, enter Fiola, an Italian restaurant in Washington, D.C. The protesters chant, "We believe survivors," referring to Cruz's public chumminess with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez.

While Cruz, a man whose spinelessness matches only the loathsomeness of his political views, once said that Kavanaugh might disappoint conservatives if confirmed, he has since changed his tune. In July, Cruz issued a statement in support of the judge, saying, "By any measure, Judge Kavanaugh is one of the most respected federal judges in the country, and I look forward to supporting his nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States." During Kavanaugh's hearing, Cruz pitched the nominee an easy one, joking about how the two soft dads both coach their daughters' basketball teams and inquiring about what Kavanaugh had learned from the experience.
At one point, one of the protesters yells, "Beto is way hotter than you, dude," referring to Cruz's opponent, Rep. Beto O'Rourke. (Cruz has bafflingly attempted to attack him by tweeting a video of O'Rourke condemning the death of Botham Jean, who was shot and killed in his home by an off-duty police officer.) Cruz seems to have been particularly wounded by the sentiment, and was spotted looking at a picture of him on a flight Tuesday morning.

This would be sad if it was anyone other than Ted Cruz.
