It is sad about the state of things, but these debates are no different then any other past political debates (anywhere). In fact if you think these
are bad, take a look at transcripts of the Lincoln / Douglas debates. Or better yet look at the rhetoric thrown out by Jefferson and Madison, now
there was some ugly politics. In fact, I would say it is a little more civilized nowadays since noone in Congress has to worry about duels or other
congressmen wacking them over their heads with canes.
