Comedian Jon Stewart highlighted Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on his show last night, pointing out that the principled freshman Senator was considering a presidential run.

“Why limit yourself to being hated by your colleagues when you could be hated by the whole country?” asked Stewart.

Stewart called Cruz a “run-of-the-mill strict constitutionalist” before highlighting the fact that Cruz was born while his mother was in Canada.

“Our beloved Texas freedom fighter is nothing but a dirty syrup-guzzler!” Stewart hollered. “What a terrible twist, eh?”
