In round three of our fashion battles, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and The Most Interesting Man alive duke it out.
Ted Cruz vs. The Most Interesting Man Alive
After fending off trendy challenger Beto O’Rourke in the 2018 Senate elections, the junior senator from Texas decided to add some Austin hipster flair to his image by growing a well-groomed beard. He’d certainly look more interesting reading Green Eggs and Ham from the Senate floor now like he did during the 2013 government shutdown. Meanwhile, would The Most Interesting Man Alive still be a cultural icon with Lone Star State-sized ambitions without his seminal coiffed mane? Doubtful.
Victor: Senator Ted Cruz—because, beard or not, as long as you’re Republican, you don’t have to be that interesting to triumph in Texas.
