Catholic League vs. NH GOP

As noted in the Morning Briefing, Catholic League President Bill Donohue has gotten into a verbal shoving match with a couple of GOP state legislators in the Granite State after Donohue attacked House Majority Leader David Bettencourt called Manchester Bishop John McCormack a "pimp." Betten court backed off but two of his colleagues piled on. The Catholic League took umbrage.
Forgive me the schadenfreude, which I know is a sin, and I promise to go to confession, but folks: This is like the Iran-Iraq war. You almost want it to go on for a bit.
