I can't understand why people hate our politcal discourse

Pierre Poilievre just called Scott Brison a turkey during a discussion between the two and Judy Wasylycia-Leis on Question Period today.

Brison was giving a rather long response to a question about Denis Corderre going to Afganistan on his own against the wishes of the government. Craig Oliver was attempting to get Poilievre into the discussion to respond, but Brison was still talking. Once Brison was done, Poilievre joked that he could start because he couldn't hear the "turkey" any more.

I mean, Brison did go overboard, but everybody knew that. Why bother calling him a turkey? It's a lame joke that nobody is going to laugh at, and is only going to get people pissed off. But such is life in our Canadian federal politics, and it will be until we have a majority in power once again.
