Deathroes of Senate Civility


Well, here is a sad video of Sen. Franken getting in a smackdown with Joe Lieberman. Sen. McCain (whom I like) came to Liebermans defense. Now, McCain’s comment is mostly true. As the other Senator, it had already happened once that day. Additionally, I’m pretty sure I remember a Republican doing that to a Democrat two years ago sometime. I need to go looking for when that happened, I remember it because it really upset the minority. So though it had happened, it’s extremely rare and extremely insulting and a sign of the civility of the Senate falling apart at the seams.
