Contrast this open bickering and name-calling, with Reagan, and Regan's 11th commandment.

Didn't somebody post that McCain and Cruz were seen having lunch?

Cruz was, no doubt, getting schooled in how things are going to work going forward...

Me too. I am also an official and registered 'wacko bird', if that means I believe John McCain is a senile old loony nutball who should have been gone a century ago, back when he was still almost sane.

I think McCain feels threatened by the young guys.  Instead of retiring as he should have done years ago, He hangs onto his seat for the power and glory he needs to get through the day.

I see him as a jealous old man!

McCain hates everything.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Conservatives, anyway.  He is quite chummy with Obama.

I'm not too sure about that.  He would be the second guy to vote for Impeachment.  He comes across as the "Brute", in the "Et tu, Brute?".  I could be wrong.

Senators who hate Cruz also hate their constituents because we think more like Cruz than McCain.

Which is why the 17th amendment is such a disaster... before the 17th senators were accountable back home to their constituents since the legislatures in the states who communicate with their constituents then went to the capital to elect the senator... the only thing close to this left in the country is how they do it in Utah... and how Bennett was done away with.....

Yes, and it goes at least both ways.  Then again, Reagan wasn't always the most conscientous follower thereof:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Eleventh_Commandment_%28Ronald_Reagan%29

Also, it's interesting to note that, historically, the 11th commandment was created by then California Republican Party Chairman Gaylord Parkinson to put a stop to attacks by liberal republicans on conservative republicans; to quote from the wikipedia article:
Quote
The goal was to prevent a repetition of the liberal Republican assault on Barry Goldwater, attacks which contributed to Goldwater's defeat in the 1964 presidential election.  East Coast Republicans like Nelson Rockefeller labeled Goldwater an "extremist" for his conservative positions and declared him unfit to hold office.  Fellow Republican candidate for Governor George Christopher and California's liberal Republicans were leveling similar attacks on Reagan. Hoping to prevent a split in the Republican Party, Parkinson used the phrase as common ground. Party liberals eventually followed Parkinson's advice.

Perhaps 'tis the liberal republicans of today who (again) need reminding the most of the 11th Amendment?  In other words, John McCain should shut the h&ll up.

I hear Al Quaida in Syria is looking for a new General. I don't know, he should at least think about it
After all, I know he would, and actully has,  fit right in.
