Simmering tensions in the Alabama Senate boiled over Thursday when a Republican lawmaker punched a Democratic colleague in the head before they were pulled apart.Republican Sen. Charles Bishop said Democratic Sen. Lowell Barron called him a “son of a [expletive].”

Geez. They act like they think they’re the Taiwanese Parliament.

    Republican Sen. Charles Bishop claimed that Democratic Sen. Lowell Barron called him a “son of a (expletive)” in the Senate chamber on Thursday.

    “I was raised in the woods of Arkansas and people don’t say that about your mom,” Bishop said.

    – I get called an SOB almost on a daily basis and never really thought through the fact that they are actually insulting my mom. I don’t know whether to be relieved or pissed off.

    This money quote at the end of the article:

    “It’s certainly a black eye on the Legislature and the Senate in particular,” Republican Rep. Jay Love said.

    I have to believe that metaphor was accidental.
