There is probably no more annoying Democrat in the Senate than Chris Murphy from Connecticut and today we found out he’s headed to the Middle East with Mitt Romney:
Mitt Romney and Chris Murphy are traveling to the Middle East together this week. Is it too early to call them amigos?

The U.S. faces complex challenges around the world, particularly in the Middle East. Over the next several days, Senator Murphy and I will be meeting with government officials in Israel and Jordan—working to maintain and strengthen our alliances with key partners in the region. pic.twitter.com/njus1vxVAn

First stop? Israel:

Reminder: Murphy was in the Senate bashing Mitt the last time he ran for president:
I love when Romney's "inside voice" ("don't care about poor people", "corps are people, my friend") escapes.

Although the two do share a love of mixing it up at the soda fountain, so maybe they’ll get along after all:
I do that too, Mitt! @PhilipRucker: At soda fountain, Mitt Romney mixes it up: "A little Diet Coke and a little bit of the real stuff."
