Someone made the mistake of asking John Thune why Tennessee’s Bob Corker occasionally strays from the party line:

“I think he’s a guy who’s willing to get down into the weeds,” said South Dakota Sen. John Thune, who is No. 4 in GOP leadership. “Because he immerses himself in that and understands it so well — the positions he adopts may not always be the ones that everyone else in our conference comes to.”

So basically the aim of the caucus is to intentionally not “get down into the weeds” on policy issues so that it’s better able to hang together to fuck everything up.  Good to know!
