A good ol' fashioned caning

A political cartoon depicting Preston Brooks's...I took a class about political polarization last semester. The entire semester is summed up as “We’re getting more and more polarized an will hit an irreversible, cataclysmic point sometime soon.”I just kept wanted to say: “Yeah, but when was the last time a member of one party caned a member of the opposite party?”“We consider the act good in conception, better in execution, and best of all in consequences. These vulgar abolitionists in the Senate must be lashed into submission.”Preston Brooks 2012 Image via Wikipedia
