Who on earth decided to call Politicians 'Honourable' as in My Honourable Friend(?)

I can think of a lot more appropriate terms, most of them unprintable. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Probably the same person who calls the opposition "My very good friends from across the aisle..." Which we hear ad nauseum over here. If these people were honest they would acknowledge that there are very real differences between ideologies and that fact and those differences should preclude "friendship." It should be pistols at twenty paces.

Honourable 220px-Wild-Bill-3

Honourable Magnify-clip"Wild Bill" Hickok in 1869. Because a knife would not have been worn unsheathed, it is likely a photographer's prop. Although buckskins are often seen in movies depicting earlier periods, Hickok was one of the first to wear them.
Do you really want him? He was kind of a killer with weird fashion sense. affraid
