When we compile our weekly roundup of most-read news stories, we sometimes get an inkling that a certain item will strike enough of a chord with the public to end up on top.

This week, we correctly predicted exactly what story would be: a yarn about the former head of the Republican National Committee urging U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz to "Just sit the hell down, please" after his over-the-top speechifying at the CPAC conference.

After all, who among us hasn't wished that we could go on national TV and dispense similar advice to Texas' junior senator every time he opens his creepily shaped, booger-consuming pie hole?
