We get it. It's hard out there for politicians. They have to make big decisions, appear at countless press events with a friendly smile and try to eat pizza without dripping sauce on their suits -- must be rough.

So every once in a while, when they get so fed up with a reporter's pressing questions or don't like how a vote is going, they react like a human being and completely lose their $*&@ing minds.

But unlike ordinary people, politicians are constantly in the limelight and surrounded by cameras. Luckily for us this means public meltdowns and fist fights are recorded to be replayed over and over again for our own personal enjoyment for millennia to come.

Get ready, as here are some of our all-time favorite videos of politicians seriously losing their cool.

  • Mike Bost

    "Let my people go," Bost screams. We also really like when he throws up the papers and then tries to hit them midair.

  • Howard Dean

    We like to think that Dean's "Byah" was a gift to the comedy gods. It's still a little sad that it cost him so much of the respect people had for him.

  • Mohammed Shawabka

    Protip: Never pull a gun during a TV interview.

  • Anthony Weiner

    Do not try to interrupt Anthony Weiner while he is talking.

  • Rick Santorum

    We really hope the reporter at least got his Santorum sign autographed.

  • Ilias Kasidiaris

    This Greek politician obviously did not want to talk about the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/07/ilias-kasidiaris-assaults-female-mps-live-tv_n_1577251.html" target="_hplink">pending court case against him</a>.

  • Chris Christie

    Out of all of Chris Christie's public blunders, this one is by far our favorite. Can you guess why? Three words: ice cream cone.

  • John Boehner

    It starts out pretty calm, but around one minute mark, when Boehner starts asking questions, he gets pretty impassioned, exclaiming: "Hell no you can't!"

  • Lebanese Politicans

    If they <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/15/lebanon-politicians-fight-live-tv_n_1095468.html" target="_hplink">come to blows on live TV</a> we can't even imagine how they discuss Syria in dark alleyways.

  • Joe Walsh

    Did he know he was being filmed? Also, that woman who he yells at is a really good sport. At the end she even offers him some decaf coffee.

  • Phil Davison

    This is almost too sad to watch.

  • Ukraine's Parliament

    This is how Ukraine does politics.

  • Karl Rove

    At 1:47 the occupy protesters start chanting and Rove does not like it. Not the best video quality, but we really appreciate the level to which politicians try to pretend that they will answer ALL the questions during the Q&A portion of the night.

  • Carty Finkbeiner

    This may not be the greatest video edit, but Mayor Finkbeiner (allegedly) has one approach to get children to exercise: shaming.

  • Charles Bishop

    "I responded to his comment with my right hand," <a href="http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,279352,00.html" target="_hplink">Bishop reportedly said</a>.

  • Carl Paladino

    "You send another goon to my house and I'll take you out buddy."

  • Abel LeBlanc

    LeBlanc has a lot of hand gestures and he isn't afraid to use them.

  • Taiwanese Politicians

    When defending your political point of view battle royale style it's best to have a background in judo.

  • John Prescott

    Prescott was probably thinking: you throw and egg at me, I punch you in the face.
