Pictures sometimes don’t require a script.

Things reportedly got testy during a commercial break, when Rick Perry confronted Ron Paul.

I don’t know about Ron Paul, though I’m certain his supporters will go nuclear over this one, but when a man puts his hands on another man, pointing a finger in his face for emphasis, that’s a point when things have crossed the line.

From IBT:

This time, things got physical.

During a commercial break, Perry walked up to Paul’s podium, physically grabbed Paul’s wrist, and pointed at Paul’s face with his other hand …

…and the Romney campaign thought calling Social Security a “ponzi scheme” was a gift.

UPDATE: “Force vs. Reason,” compliments of RonPaul.com:

During a commercial break at Wednesday’s Republican debate, Rick Perry and Ron Paul continued their spirited exchange on stage. Suddenly, Perry grabbed Ron Paul’s forearm while aggressively pointing his index finger towards the Congressman’s face. Alerted by Perry’s menacing gestures, Ron Paul’s bodyguard (front left) was standing by, ready to protect the Congressman.
