Putting the dueling communications chiefs of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Republican National Committee (RNC) on a split screen is a standard — and successful — part of the daytime Fox News formula. In the segment above, Brad Woodhouse of the DNC and Sean Spicer of the RNC do their part, clashing hard over Libya.

After Spicer rants over the Obama administration’s response to Benghazi, Woodhouse hammers him for politicizing the affair. Then comes the Cross-Talk Olympics, as the two fellows talk over each other for nearly a full 20 seconds. In this incivility, you can feel the imminence of the election.
