Correction: Twitchy, not Sen. Cruz, made the boo-boo. As our astute commenters have pointed out, Grover Cleveland served two nonconsecutive terms. Our apologies to Sen. Cruz.

Senator Ted Cruz might be one of the smartest people on Capitol Hill, but he made a bit of a boo-boo today by asking which of “our 43 American presidents” inspire his Twitter followers. Of course, there have been 44, counting President Obama — which our friends on the Left were giddy to point out.

It’s possible that Cruz meant to ask only about past presidents, or that it was simply a typo. Either way, he got some interesting responses from all 57 states.

Franklin Pierce? Not sure we would have picked that one — but he did have awesome hair.
