In other news, Moody's has downgraded the bond rating of Governor Sam Brownback's Kansas from "stable" to "negative."

Moody’s cited the state’s use of one-time-only money and pension underfunding – key features of the budget bill passed early Monday – as reasons for caution in investing in Kansas bonds.

“The revision of the state’s outlook to negative from stable reflects the ongoing difficulties it is having restoring structural balance to its budget and getting on a path to sounder funding of its pension liabilities,” said the Moody’s release announcing the change.

Meanwhile, GOP presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz says frontrunner Donald Trump is an amoral, pathological liar, and a narcissist. He's not wrong, but Ted Cruz is also all of those things.

Finally, Trump has reached a new high of 56 percent support among GOP voters according to a new NBC News poll. The base loves amoral liars.

    My joy at seeing Cruz gone was tempered by the fact that I think he would have been easier to defeat. But that’s the best thing you could say of him. A truly horrible individual. Whoever drafted the usage of the word “oleaginous” to describe Cruz gets my vote for word of the 2016 election.

    Pot meet kettle. And neither he nor Republicans would ever admit it.
