From Washington Post
The only thing separating them being a single Senate desk, Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) engaged in what Senate rules deem a "colloquy," but what most observers would call an old-style public airing of grievances.
At one point, Corker accused Cruz and Lee of turning Senate proceedings “into a show.” Cruz countered by questioning Corker’s loyalty to the Republican Party by siding with Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.)
The clash lasted roughly 10 minutes, with colleagues watching and cameras rolling. It exposed deep disagreements among Republicans over how they should proceed with the spending bill, which currently includes language defunding the new federal health-care law. But using procedural rules that allow him to make changes to the bill, Reid plans to amend the bill by restoring funding for the new federal health-care law.

It may seem nice, all this talk in Southern accents with Senate formalities. But Bob Corker and Ted Cruz are in a brawl.— Matt Viser (@mviser) September 26, 2013

That sound you hear is Democratic aides salivating over their keyboards as they watch C-SPAN2 right now.

If you turn on CSPAN2, you can currently see what is pretty much a Senatespeak remake of the Big Kahuna Burger scene in Pulp Fiction.

Sen. Bob Corker said Ted Cruz has been "putting on a show in the Senate," a claim Cruz has denied to reporters for the last two hours.— Top Conservative Cat (@TeaPartyCat) September 26, 2013
Sarcasm alert: "I yield the floor and I enjoyed this very much" @SenBobCorker

Spoke with Corker. He's furious with Cruz. "They said they sent out a lot of emails... and they don't want to mess that up."
