Having an affinity for the band Nickelback is probably a taste you should keep to yourself. But imagine some jerk following you around to slander you with the Scarlett Letter of music.
Sure, you can go after a candidate’s citizenship, you can bring up his past sexual affairs, but claiming they like Nickelback takes things a step too far. Where’s the evidence? Who cares. The damage is done.
All thanks to this guy following around Ted Cruz’s campaign hoisting a sign that reads, “Ted Cruz likes Nickelback.”

The Cruz campaign has yet to comment.
