Regarding Whig-Clio’s recent vote to rescind Sen. Ted Cruz ’92’s James Madison Award for Distinguished Public Service over something so petty as a sworn Constitution protector’s subversion of such a trivial democratic principle as vote counting, it seems a shame to leave him empty-handed after his years of thankless toil on the meager salary of a U.S. senator. Does Whig-Clio have a consolation award for him?  If not, it might be time for the new Ted Cruz Award for Distinguished Public Disservice.
