Must See C-Span 2?

As ridiculous as Rep. Joe Wilson's outburst calling Obama a liar during his speech was, I'll play devil's advocate... maybe its a sign our legislative branch is getting more exciting to watch. Jeering essentially tradition in the House of Commons, but how are we supposed to compete with other countries that have outright brawls?

Countries like:

Ukraine:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cD0XZlxKuig

Russia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZGaaqH2o6I

Alabama (Its next to Georgia I think ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlXKBribICs&feature=related

Bolivia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjMeQoIq36c&feature=related

We must not allow a boorishness gap!!!

...then again in the old days of the congress they'd just "demand satisfaction," which as far as I know, and I saw it on a Simpsons Episode, they still do in SC. (http://politicalgraveyard.com/death/duels.html).
