On the one hand, it’s almost refreshing to see a form of national politics in which the democratically elected representatives allow their genuine interests in an issue (over a media reform bill?) spill over into passionate, in this case violent, human emotion. There’s not a lot of pandering and playing both sides when you have got a bitch by her weave. These guys are literally fighting for what they believe in, and that’s fresh.

On the other hand, the CDC should probably investigate the world’s stockpiles of weaponized Rage Virus to see if any has gone missing. (Via BuzzFeed.)

  1. It’s a dog eat dog world. Unless you’re Korean. Then it’s a Korean eat dog world.

  2. I kept hoping special effects kid of old would pop out and make a fire orb appear in his hand, or whatever. i feel only special effects kid can solve the korean crisis

  3. The last time I think this happened in America it was like this:

    Milford Sound in New Zealand

    We went hard. Or full retard. Depending on which side you were on.

  4. I don’t get it. This is how most korean pornos start. Then there’s an orgy, some bukakke and everyone goes home to have some dinner and pass out.

  5. From the linked news article:

    “The scenes were not unusual to South Korea’s confrontational and melodramatic politics, where rival parties sometimes resort to violence to get their way. Last year, opposition lawmakers used sledgehammers to pound their way into a parliamentary committee room to block the ruling party from introducing a bill to ratify a free trade pact with the United States.”

    Are you paying attention, Republicans? Here’s your plan for VICTORY!

  6. Not sure how much Korean you all speak, but it’s not quite as intense as it may seem. The lady in white was simply yelling: “let me play with your look.”

  7. I probably would have watched more of the Sotomayor conformation if it had been decided by a battle of fisticuffs in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
    Orrin Hatch & Lindsey Graham VS Al Franken and Arlen Specter. 5 Rounds. 5 minutes each. Keep it clean gentlemen.

  8. People do eat dogs in Korea. No e-racism, just dog-eating. They also take Tae Kwon Do in school. Mandatory. Not that you could tell from this video…

  9. Has anyone ever watched the Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQ), as in British Parliament? They don’t get quite as ridiculous as Korea, but every week they hold a PMQ and it’s just profanity galore and no decorum. It is like that howling cat video x200.

      The best thing about British parliament is the way everybody has to address eachother as ‘my right honourable friend’. It’s why British people have such bad teeth. From all the gritting.

  10. Let’s all paint, exercise, fight and legislate.

  11. Never realized Park Chan-wook films were actually political dramas.
    Thanks for teaching me something every day, Internet.

  12. Here come the bullpens!

    America needs to get on the representative pain train, maybe sell some tickets, it would help the economy and Make C-Span more watchable. First Up Al Franken vs. Strom Thurmond’s corpse.

  14. Why can’t we have fistfights in Congress? We just get thinly-veiled insults and filibusters.

    FTPPBITTTD (Fuck The Parliamentary Procedure Bullshit, It’s Time To Throw Down).

  15. The guy at :25 is an exceptional fighter.

    The popular recording artist William Joel once wrote about this…

    It’s all about Seoul.
    It’s all about faith and a deeper devotion.
    It’s all about Seoul.
    ‘Cause under love is a stronger emotion.

    What is sad is that no one knows the K-government is going gestapo for real while everyone pays attention to kim jeong il.
