In what's just the latest evidence that Ted Cruz's inevitable presidential campaign is going to be the best, the junior senator from Texas scared the bejeezus out of a 3-year-old girl in New Hampshire.
"The whole world's on fire," Cruz says, while doing his requisite yammering about President Obama's bringing about the end of American hegemony.
"The world's on fire?!," Julie Trant, 3, exclaims before Cruz makes an effort to comfort her -- by telling her that yes, indeed the world is on fire.
"The world is on fire, yes," he tells Julie, "your world is on fire. But you know what, your mommy is here and everyone's here to make sure that the world you grow up in is even better."
