During a televised debate in the Argentine Congress over budget cuts recently, Graciela Camano punched opposition politician Carlos Kunkel in the mouth then walked out of the chamber.
"Under no circumstances will I allow Mr Kunkel or anyone else to lack respect," she said later. "He wore me out because I have been putting up with him all year long. He kept shouting without making a single proposal....He is always attacking me."
She refused to identify what Carlos said to antagonize her, but he seemed to take the whole thing in stride, applauding her for slapping him.
On a completely unrelated note: Tomorrow is day one of a two-part Oprah's Favorite Things show and we're scared to death. She's promising something so huge, it's bigger than the cars and Australian trips combined! Oh, Lord, help us all!
