Parking lot politics

State Sen. Charles Bishop, R-Jasper, is truly sorry about throwing the Punch Heard 'Round the World at his Democratic counterpart Lowell Barron last year. Kinda. From a highly recommended Daily Mountain Eagle story -- seriously, read the whole thing -- wherein Bishop refers to himself in third person more than once:

"I'm not going to apologize for striking him -- only in the chamber that is owned by the state of Alabama, 'cause if I had been smart, I'd have turned and walked off -- and I'd caught him in the parking lot and kicked his butt good."

The Legislature is back in session in 20 days. Brace yourself.

What part of that statment is in the third person?

None of it. But as I wrote, he referred to himself in the third person elsewhere in the story, where he asked, "Have you ever read in your paper over a period of years of Charles getting mad and hitting somebody? No, I don't think so."

D.O. shares Mr. Bishop's belief that breaking someone's legs in a parking lot is much, much classier.

I'll see you outside.
