This coloring book features Ted Cruz fighting a giant snake named Obamacare

For Senator Ted Cruz, running for president is a case of life imitating art — or rather, life imitating coloring book.

Publisher Really Big Coloring Book released the Ted Cruz-themed coloring book Cruz to the Future in late 2013 — the publisher says it was the top-selling children's coloring book on Amazon for "about 20 weeks" — and an 8-page supplement, "Ted Saves America," in fall 2014. The image above, of Cruz celebrating his arrival in the White House by doing an Exorcist tribute, is from  the supplement. So is this image that we can only hope Cruz will replicate next, in which he saves America from giant mutant snakes.
