I didn't notice too many wisecracks in the presidential debate, but this carries it to Jon Stewart proportions.

Yes. Congressional debates would be the same, if not for rules prohibiting such conduct on the floor.

Presidential debates don't happen every week. It means there can be more levity as saying the same things every week wouldn't get votes. Pretending to be a human being is helpful in that regard.

Yes, watching sessions of Parliament can be like watching episodes of Monty Python. The remarks, the attitudes and the occasional physical violence are common place.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16
