In the Norwegian Parliament there has been lots of hair-splitting cases whether the President of the Parliament should reprimand a speaker for using unacceptable language or not. Characterizing another member of the Parliament is almost never accepted, while characterizing a statement, which everyone knows who made, as utter nonsense is much more likely to be accepted.
Maybe "moronic" is so insulting that it wouldn't be accepted at all in our Parliament. But "nonsense" is certainly acceptable. Besides, there are a few recognized modifiers: You could e.g. say that claiming that schoolbags made of clear plastic improves security is, with all due respect, utter nonsense. The "with all due respect" really is the opposite ... You use it to indicate that you really have no respect, but since you explicitly indicate that you are aware that you are bordering on the respectless but will not cross the line, you may actually do that: Cross the line to the respectless. It is like "I usually have respect for the speaker before me, but this time... well..."
The point was that the super portrays himself as someone who's truly nicey-nice, and condemns everyone who displayed even the mildest of aggression in an argument. However, he personally attacked someone and then went on a spree to justify it, and basically reduced it to an English/grammar question.
