Separated at Birth: The Sen. Ted Cruz Edition

The confirmation hearing for Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense got pretty heated on Thursday. Senators joined forces to hammer Hagel with tough questions about past statements and whether or not he wanted to adopt Israel as the 51st state. (Or something like that.)
