Think the 'mud slinging' that goes on between American politicians is too much?  Try a little Jordanian politics and you'll see that our politicians are kittens by comparison.

According to Examiner.com, as the debate heated up, Mohammed Shawabka threw his shoe at rival Mansour Sayf al-Din Murad. But things got much, much worse.

Shawabka pulled a gun on Sayf al-Din Murad, claiming he had insulted his mother. Shawabka could face serious charges as a result.  Makes the old west look pretty tame, huh?
