The question “What would Ted Cruz look like in drag?” is not one that would have occurred to me or probably anyone else were it not for the recent appearance of one Searcy Hayes on the “Maury (Povich) Show.”

Hayes was there to promote a six-minute sex video that she and her husband planned to record and distribute because they are cash-strapped.

But the narrative changed when more than one viewer noticed that Hayes bears a remarkable resemblance to Sen. Ted Cruz .

The attention Hayes received as a result of the appearance — and her appearance — prompted porn website XHamster to offer the couple $10,000 for the six-minute session between the sheets.

XHamster was mentioned in these pages earlier this month when the site announced it would no longer peddle its steamy wares to North Carolina because of the state’s controversial “bathroom law.”
