Ted Cruz's Drunken Law School Antics Revealed

The Boston Globe poked around Texas Senator Ted Cruz's time at Harvard Law School. Some of the findings are almost too good to be true.

Among them: the Republican senator once got so drunk that he couldn't perform in a school play the next day.

From the Globe:

"After the successful first performance, Cruz spent the cast party imbibing so much Everclear — a powerful grain alcohol — that he couldn’t make it through the next night’s performance. His fellow actors had to coax him into going onstage, but by Act III his condition worsened.

A video of the performance shows him sitting on a bench onstage, his head buried in his hands for nearly five minutes straight. After meekly delivering a line, he walked off stage in the middle of the scene, forcing cast members to improvise around the departure of a lead character. He didn’t return for the remainder of the play."

Ted Cruz: man of the people.
