McCain Aide: McCain [Fornicating] Hates Cruz
Cruz: I'm Embarrassed to Have Supported McCain in 2008

McCain is offended by Cruz's style.

I know Drew covered this earlier, or at least the nimbus of it, and observed wryly how hysterical it is that one politician could possibly object to another in terms of "grandstanding."

But to hear that McCain -- McCain! grandest of grand-standers! -- is "offended" by Cruz's attention-getting style is just the most precious thing I think I've ever heard.

Sen. John McCain does not have a high opinion of the freshman Republican from Texas, Sen. Ted Cruz.

An adviser to Mr. McCain told GQ that “He … hates Cruz” and said that the Arizona Republican is “just offended by his style.”

I don't know why the Washington Times deleted the [bleeping] there. Seems silly. Everyone else reported there was a common vulgar seven-letter gerundial intensifier in there.

Meanwhile, Ted Cruz says he's "embarrassed" to have supported McCain in 2008.

The main reason I'm posting this (both already covered and hit in the sidebar) is to explain my now deleted joke, where I linked Ted Cruz's "embarrassed to have supported McCain" line with the hyperlink text, "I'm not a witch. I'm you."

Here was my thinking on that joke (which I gave about 30 seconds thought to): McCain has called Cruz a "wacko bird," thus putting him in the same sort of fringe camp as Christine O'Donnell. My idea of the joke was that the "I'm you" line would correspond with "embarrassed to have supported McCain," a widely-shared feeling. Thus, I was suggesting that by saying that McCain embarrasses him, Cruz is saying he's like "you" (the general conservative voter).

But the joke really wasn't well-thought out and I see from negative feedback that few followed my convoluted and half-baked (if that) line of thought.

Anyway. Didn't really mean to take a shot at Cruz with that joke; it was intended to be at McCain's expense.

I swear that guy sounds just like Kurt Cobain.
