American politics, we think it's dirty, cruel, mean and vicious. American politics has nothing on the  political issues from other lands. Here in American we might call our opponent a jack-ass but at least we don't slap him in the back of the head during a speech. Here in America we might want to soundly open a can of you-know-what and pour it all over our detractors but we don't. In other lands and other cultures the fine art of fist fighting is not only a great way to get your point across, but it appears to be the method of choice. It sure is more fun to watch than a debate.
