As promised, here are my three favorite videos of dysfunctional politicians working out their differences in a bipartisan fashion - complete with fisticuffs, hair-pulling, what looks like an eye-gouge, and a shoe-throwing incident. . . . Not that shoe-throwing incident . . . but I do include George W. Shrub's finest moment as POTUS as bonus footage.
Third Place - Politicos in India take it to the house - or the floor of their House - arming themselves with microphones as spear and club in a bi-partisan effort to work out their differences.
The kicker to that one is: They were debating 'Civil Rights' for Pete's sake!!!
So much for civil discourse. . .
Second Place - Heavyweight politicos in the Ukraine utilize the bully pulpit . . . . literally.
Fisticuffs, hair-pulling and I thought I saw an eye gouge in that bipartisan brouhaha. . . . And fade to Windows. . . But the gold medal goes to the following:
First Place - Mayhem in Taiwan's House of Congress is sparked by a shoe-throwing incident reminiscent of W.'s chuck-and-duck moment in Iraq. I admit, I thought shoe-throwing was a sign of disrespect in the Middle East, not the Far East. (???) Oh well, a nice shot that earns two thumbs-up and a nod of approval.
BONUS CLIP - Here's Dubya in his finest moment of jocularity (or jock-ularity). At least he looked like an athlete in the infamous shoe-chucking incident that got the reporter six months in Abu Ghrab (or some other Iraqi hoosegow).
Ya' gotta miss the big, dysfunctional lug!
