Why does Sarah Palin hate Ted Cruz so much?
From Washington Times
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has lashed out at Sen. Ted Cruz and critics of Donald Trump as political terrorists intent on destroying a nationalist revolution.
Mrs. Palin wrote an op-ed Monday for Independent Journal Review about her career trajectory, how the billionaire’s supporters should treat “belated mea culpas,” and Mr. Cruz’s “suicide” mission.
Mr. Cruz refused to endorse Mr. Trump’s presidential bid at the GOP convention in Cleveland last week, instead opting to tell Republicans to “vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom, and to be faithful to the constitution.”
Mrs. Palinwrote that despite the Texas senator’s metaphorical detonation, “oppressors of this nationalist revolution found a way to save face. The obvious wall-writing told them they’d lose money and influence if they continued fighting AGAINST the majority, so the donor class scattered from their polarizing candidate when Ted Cruz’s suicide vest detonated at the GOP convention.”
Mrs. Palin said that she lost employment opportunities after hopping aboard the “Trump Train” and sitting at the “cool kids table.”
“From fair-weather friends and ‘supporters’ turning decisively away in the meanest of ways, to me losing jobs — literally — the moment my support for Trump was made public, we sucked it up and hung on to hope that vindication was around the corner,” Mrs. Palin said. “I was told — for the umpteenth time — my career was over for ‘going rogue’ this election cycle. … Now we move down the battlefield to hold culprits accountable so they won’t be rewarded with opportunity to keep screwing you, America.”
Mrs. Palin said that since “the revolution has just begun,” it is incumbent upon Mr. Trump’s supporters to “rise to the challenge of becoming better, not bitter, in the midst of what the obstructionists tried to do.”
Since the campaign season has started this isn't the first swipe Sarah has taken at Ted:
Palin -- herself a high school basketball player who is now backing Cruz's rival, Donald Trump -- responded to Cruz on Wednesday, writing on Facebook, "It's smarter to actually put the ball through the HOOP before you claim victory."

They used to be best buds. Sarah campaigned for Ted, met up with him in DC during the shutdown. What gives?
