Much more interesting when GOP brawls

Asked if the Republican Party is getting any closer to a clarifying moment picking a candidate for the 2016 Presidential run, syndicated columist George Will said on Fox News Sunday this week:
"I certainly hope not. It's much more interesting when they are brawling with one another.
"Look, the Republicans have been fighting with one another since 1912, when a former Republican ran against an incumbent Republican, Teddy Roosevelt against William Howard Taft. And the conservative movement can't win in this argument because if they are harmonious, the media says stultifying, monochrome, oppressive, no diversity. And then when they argue with each other, they say cry havoc and slip the dogs of civil war in the Republican Party. It's perfect nonsense."
