Most of us have known for two years that this day was coming, but early this morning Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) officially announced his intention to run for president in 2016. While I loathe the man with just about every ounce of my being, I have to confess that I’ve been anxiously awaiting this announcement for the last two years. To be frank, a Ted Cruz presidential campaign is nothing but pure gold for political pundits and late night comedians.

Well, prior to his official announcement, Twitter erupted into a frenzy under the hashtag #TedCruzCampaignSlogans with people offering “suggestions” that the Texas senator might use heading into 2016.

And as most of you might expect, many of them were absolutely hilarious. Here are a few of my favorites:

While I think they’re all fairly hilarious, that last one really had me going.

I might be wrong, but I’m going to say it’s a fairly safe bet that the Republican National Committee hasn’t exactly been looking forward to this day. While many far-right conservatives are certainly celebrating Ted Cruz’s candidacy, those of us on the left are actually probably even more excited about it. Not only will he provide the left with plenty of material to make the Republican party look absolutely foolish, but he’s so full of himself that he’s going to be a one-man wrecking crew of other GOP candidates. I honestly don’t believe that there’s a level to which he won’t stoop to try to win the GOP nomination. If that means dragging other Republicans through the mud to do it, that’s exactly what he’ll do.

So get ready ladies and gentlemen, because Ted Cruz’s campaign promises to be one of the more ridiculous sideshows this country has ever seen.
