a crack in the armor?

For the first time in, well, I don't know how long, the big political story is the divisions in the Republican party. Thank God (pun intended)!

We've got:
- Colin Powell working against the Bolton nomination and swaying GOP Senators.
- Tom Delay continuing to be a corrupt dude, and rumblings of all out mutiny (I doubt it will happen, but the stress of holding things together won't help).
- What the Note describes as a "gaggle of GOP skeptics" on Social Security (and no progress in sight).
- GOP leaking internal polls that show little support for their efforts to end the filibuster, as Santorum speaks cautiously and McCain openly opposes.

It's going to be a nutty week in Washington next week. I recommend watching the Sunday talk shows, not going out at all this weekend and instead doing your homework so you can tune into C-Span and read a lot of news next week, lengthening your blog roll, etc. Wait, no, that's just me.
