On this day:

Yo mama

Last Thursday's fracas in the Alabama Senate between the Honorables Charles Bishop (R.-Jasper) and Lowell Barron (D.-Fyffe) - which came to an unfortunate end after Sen. Bishop punched Sen. Barron in the face - has made headlines near and far, from our own Huntsville Times to CNN, FoxNews, and the U.K. Guardian.

According to Sen. Bishop, "My mother has long been dead, and he called me a son of a bitch. That's somebody talking bad about your mother, and when he did, I responded with my right hand."

If Sen. Bishop's ill-tempered overreaction is any indication of his usual demeanor, I'd say that he has probably been called worse.
