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.
