"Gas is being thrown on the internal GOP fire."

It's so simple, GOP. Just do as the president does and you could lessen your pain. Maybe. If you really try. It's amazing how making an effort to rectify problems actually helps to solve them.

A tale of two problems: Combining the two biggest political stories over the past week, we have this question: What has been the more significant disaster -- the problems associated with the federal Obamacare website, or the state of the Republican Party after the shutdown? There is one important difference between the two stories. While the Obama administration is throwing every resource to fix its website issue, is anyone inside the GOP trying to prevent an all-out ideological civil war from breaking out? In fact, it seems to be just the opposite: Gas is being thrown on the internal GOP fire.

One example of this internal combustion concerns the Dickette herself, Liz Cheney, who is running against Sen. Mike Enzi for a Wyoming U.S. Senate seat. Per Politico, it seems she's a tad irked at John McCain, among others. She sent out a fundraising letter that said, “Liberal Republican senators like John McCain and Olympia Snowe have endorsed my opponent. We must be doing something right if these folks are fighting so hard to preserve the status quo.”

Keep throwing that gas, Liz. We all know how the Cheneys get off on big explosions.
