Much has been made about recently released pictures that show a heated exchange between Gov. Rick Perry and Rep. Ron Paul that took place during a commercial break at the recent GOP debate.

So now we know which side ALL of our elected officials come down on when it comes to choosing between alleged “job killers” and proven people killers.

We’ve been celebrating the 50th anniversary of Spy vs. Spy pretty hard the last few weeks! In fact, some would even say we’ve been celebrating TOO hard.
