Oh, Ted Cruz.
The Texas senator told the Daily Beast that he has an addiction of sorts — a video game addiction that is.
Apparently, after long days of hating on Obamacare and running for president, Cruz likes to unwind with some gaming, especially with his daughters.
According to the Daily Beast, the current favorite games of the Tea Party “firebrand” are Plants vs. Zombies (from Seattle’s own PopCap Games); Candy Crush, in which “he claims he’s in the 217th level“; and The Creeps!.
The Daily Beast reports that Cruz says his addiction is so severe that “he has to proactively deny himself the ability to spend time on it.”
A long-time lover of games, Cruz cites Space Invaders and Centipede as favorites when he was young. “I was a kid growing up in the ’70s and ’80s,” he tells the Daily Beast. “I had a Nintendo, an Atari. I still remember the Christmas we got our first Pong game.”
I dunno. This interview sounds like a lame deliberate attempt to appeal to the younger crowd — which tends to swing Democrat. Nice try, Cruz.
