Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz mixed some nightclub schtick with serious criticism of current regulations and policies as he addressed California's GOP convention on Saturday, April 30, 2016, in Burlingame. His biggest laugh line came while talking about the Delta smelt, protected by the Endangered Species Act, which he basically said would make a nice hors d'oeuvres. Cruz also derided "out-of-control liberalism." Andrew Seng The Sacramento Bee
