Clinton-Obama 'debate' turns violent

We've all heard of political back-stabbing, but this is ridiculous.

A Collegeville, Pa., man got into an argument with his brother-in-law about whether Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama should be the Democratic presidential nominee. The debate got so heated that the man pulled out a knife and allegedly stabbed the brother-in-law.

Two big ironies involving this story.

The alleged stabber is a registered Republican, according to authorities. I don't recall any violence in the debate over whether John McCain or Mike Huckabee should get the GOP nomination.

Secondly, if the man is convicted of the assault, he would be ineligible to vote for any presidential candidate.
