Proving that politics really is a contact sport, an Alabama state senator punched one of his colleagues in the head -- on the State Senate floor, while Alabama Public Television was taping.
Sen Charles Bishop (R) laid into Sen Lowell Barron (D) claiming the Democrat had called him an "SOB" in the Senate chamber. Sen Barron denies ever saying it.
Sen Bishop says he regrets the punch, saying that's no way for grown men to behave -- but he refuses to apologize. (La Crosse Tribune)
