Pure vanity. McCain thinks Cruz is hogging his spotlight. McCain’s supposed to be the party maverick, mainly by giving liberals what they want.
At least Cruz has style and class. McInsaine is a backstabbing, narcissistic SOB.
Indeed. McCain loves the maverick monicker, and it gets him all the face time on cable news and the Sunday shows. And the media loves him as long as he's stabbing other GOPers in the back politically. He learned nothing from their turning on him once he became the party nominee in 2008.
Along comes Cruz, a true font color=red>maverick fighting TPTB in his own party as well as the dems and the MSM, and Johnny-boy is so jealous. And he's getting all the ink and air time!
