Dumbest Presidential Candidate Ever?

I don't know. But I think so, since fellow Texan Rick Perry is apparently not running. I'm talking about Ted Cruz (of course).

Here's what he said on Late Night With Sean Meyers last week:
I just came back from New Hampshire where there’s snow and ice everywhere. And my view actually is simple: Debates on this should follow science, and should follow data. 

And many of the alarmists on global warming, they got a problem cuz the science just doesn’t back them up.

And in particular, satellite data demonstrates that the last 17 years there’s been zero warming. None whatsoever.

It’s why—you remember how it used to be called global warming and then magically the theory changed to climate change? The reason is it wasn’t warming, but the computer models still say it is, except the satellites show it’s not.
 Unbelievable. Except ... he's a pandering politician ... and pandering to a not-very-bright audience, apparently.

This sort of non-scientist cherry-picking of "evidence" just drives me bonkers.
