And You Thought Joe Biden's Debate Went Bad...

Jumblerant sends in a news report of how things go down in political debate over in his corner of the world:

Politician Pulls Gun On Man During TV Show
A Jordanian member of parliament flipped out during a row on TV - and pulled a gun on his debating opponent.

MP Mohammad Shawabka was debating with political activist Mansour Sayf al Din Murad on the private satellite channel Jo Sat, discussing Jordanian politics.
Go watch the video (it starts automatically, so be warned). At 0:27 you can see the dude on the right reach into his waistband and come out with what looks to be a stainless revolver (model 60?). He doesn't point it at the other guy or anything, but it's pretty amazing to see someone just whip out a pistol at a political debate.

I shudder to think of the kind of ordnance that Joe Biden would show up with...

That is all.

I thought he was going for an ankle rig when he did the shoe-throw.

King Classy right there!

He obviously was losing the debate!

"Excuse me Gentlemen. Vice-President Biden, do you have any idea what that Drone in the sky is doing circling over the Debate Venue?"

Joe Biden? Really?

He'd pull out a slingshot. Then he'd aim and miss.

Had he not ridden President Obama's coattails, there would be little reason to take this man seriously... about anything.
