Watching the Watchers: Political Crassness

Some people are concerned with the crassness on display in recent Presidential debates. On the grand scale, America remains pretty tame. For a little bit of global perspective, I present for your consideration the Kosovo Parliament wherein the opposition party attempts to obstruct the majority party by setting off teargas. In every session for the past six months. This quote, I think, sums up the situation nicely:
"In their latest protest against a 2015 EU-brokered deal with Serbia, opposition members of parliament on Thursday released two canisters, threw a glass of water at Prime Minister Isa Mustafa and aimed red lasers at the interior minister's face." —Fatos Bytyci for Reuters
