Because of the split between the ‘baggers and the marginally sane in the Republican Party, there’s now some question whether House Republicans can come together to pass a budget.

This would be a touch ironic since one of the major talking points of the last few months — a Republican shouted it triumphantly at me during a recent El Dorado appearance — is that President Obama has been operating without a budget. Republicans blame it on the majority-Democratic Senate, always failing to note that the Democrats do not have the 60 votes necessary to pass anything in that body and the House has been sending over ‘bagger budgets. It may become a bicameral failing.
