  • At the turn of another year…

    Lyon-Griswold brawl

    Reps. Roger Griswold of Connecticut and Matthew Lyon of Vermont practice politics by means of hickory stick and tongs in Congress Hall, 1798

    It’s always interesting to watch the way one thing morphs into another, and von Clausewitz’ formulation that war is “a mere continuation of politics by other means” is instructively illustrated in the gallery of a dozen photos on the CBS News site titled Best Parliamentary Brawls of 2010.

    Ukraine, Indonesia, Italy, S Korea, Nigeria, Taiwan, Turkey… that’s a pretty fair slice of gepopolitics!

    Happy New Year!

      So who would be the best GOP and Dem brawlers in the Senate? How about the House?

      The perfect post for this particular evening. May the guy representing liberty win each scrum. Heh.
