Partisan politics, anyone?

Now more than ever is the time for partisan* politics. I'd even settle for ranseur, ox tongue, or spetum politics.

*From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A partisan (also partizan) is a type of polearm that was used in Europe during medieval times. It consisted of a spear or lance head that was constructed as a small double headed axe built into the lower blade. Time showed this to not be the most effective design for war; however, the partisan stayed in 'use' for many years as a ceremonial weapon after it had become obsolete. Its design quickly changed from the practical to the foppish.
