Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican—that's the "11th Commandment" coined by California's GOP chairman in 1965 and popularized by President Ronald Reagan.

Rick Perry's ongoing dust-up over the future of the GOP's foreign policy—even while the two combined for an impressive 19 invocations of Saint Ronnie in three dueling op-eds. The 11th Commandment was a silly idea to begin with: A little red-on-red internecine strife can be good fun, argues Gene Healy, and the issues here are important. In Perry's case, though, it's a shame he couldn't come up with better arguments.
