Bachmann sows seeds of dissent among the House GOP

In addition to her general good work in this area, Bachmann is achieving this by running for the number-four GOP leadership position against party favorite Jeb Hensarling of Texas. Yes, she is messing with Texas! This pits the mainstream against the Tea Party, which apparently sees Bachmann as a leader despite (or maybe because of) her spotty relationship with the truth.

What we like about this is that it encourages GOP infighting. If they can spend a lot of time fighting about how much power the Tea Partiers should have, or how much they need to compromise extreme Tea Party orthodoxy to get stuff passed, they’ll spend less time f***ing up the country.
