The highlight of my weekend, news-wise, had to be the release of video of actress Ellen Page ambushing Ted Cruz on the campaign trail with “tough” questions about horrible no-good very-bad absolutely terrible discrimination against gays—you know, allowing religious bakers to say “no” to catering a religious ceremony they disapprove of.
The video is pretty entertaining; you can watch it here if you haven’t seen it. Warning: You may feel a bit bad for Page by the end. Politico‘s transcript pretty handily captures Cruz’s debate jiu-jitsu:
The Republican candidates for president, judging by the debates this evening, are unserious when it comes to the Islamic State.

Marco Rubio won the first GOP presidential debate on Thursday night. He was confident, energetic, eloquent, knowledgeable, and figured out the way to handle Donald Trump. The importance of debates is vastly overrated, and it’s a long, long time before the first caucus in Iowa, but Rubio proved he belongs in the first tier of presidential contenders, and will be in this race for the long haul.

The videos from Center for Medical Progress depict Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of fetal issue after abortion.
