In a week where political debates have been boring affairs outside of the occasional amazing beard, pee break, and Constitutional Law Lesson, we were pretty excited to see this lede in Politico:
A congressional debate in Colorado briefly turned physical over the weekend, when Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.) slapped Republican Ryan Frazier.
Hurray! It's Perlmutter-Frazier II: The Rumble In The Rockies! This'll be great on the show! But then we watched the video:
And you know what? That is not a slap. I don't know what it is. It's barely a poke. It may be a caress, or a paw. Possibly even a blandishment.
