The Fifth Horseman: I love when Republicans fight Republicans...

I love when Republicans fight Republicans...

Well, there has been some tension these past few weeks between several factions of the Republican party over the President's proposed budget, social security reforms, and stem cell research.

This makes me unbelievably happy. Let's examine some quotes from the right wing:

"They're not being honest with the American people."
--Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma; referring to the Department of Defense’s shady budget requests.

"Such gimmicks are, at best, false budgeting."
--Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho; criticizing the administrations health and labor appropriations request, which obtains its funds by cutting benefits for the nation's poor.

“What does it do to the culture of life when you let people die because there are medical research tools which could keep them alive?"
--Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pennsylvania retorting to a comment by Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kansas questioning the effects of stem cell research upon the so-called “culture of life.

Those are all I have the energy to post right now. More examples of Republican infighting can be found through a simple glance through the Politics section of CNN or

What does the feuding mean for the rest of us? Good stuff.

Why? Because, if the Republicans are kept busy fighting each other, they won’t have the opportunity to do any further damage to this nation by passing any more of their batshit-crazy legislation.

Let’s hope they keep it up.
