Congress Needs A Good Duel--UPDATE

Congress is in an uproar. Procedures seem to be out the window. Democrats are manipulating things when they know they've lost a vote. The Republicans walked out It's a mess. (Delightfully little is getting done.) Chaos reigns.

It's been a few years, but I do believe it's time to clear the air in Congress. The only way I know how is an old-fashioned fist fight. Or better yet, a duel. A duel brings a certain gravity to the proceedings. And there's historical precedent for it:

On July 11, 1804, Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr met on the dueling grounds at Weehawken, New Jersey, to fight the final skirmish of a long-lived political and personal battle. When the duel was over, Hamilton would be mortally wounded, and Burr would be wanted for murder.

Here's the video:

Update Again:
Evidently the Democrats admitted a mistake. Here's the Republican response to that admission:

Captain Ed says:
Democrats like to blather at length about how George Bush abuses his power and attacks freedom and liberty. This episode shows who the real totalitarians are.
