It may have seemed like a Saturday Night Live sketch, but it really was a debate between the men who want to be Idaho's GOP candidate for governor in an event that is now being mocked across the country.
The GOP primary is Tuesday and, according to candidate Harley Brown, Idahoans will choose between, "a cowboy a curmudgeon or a normal guy."
That so-called normal guy Brown referred to is State Senator Russ Fulcher, who is making the rounds before voters hit the polls.
The debate lasted almost an hour, but the most popular highlight reel, just a few minutes long, is what the whole world is watching and it is not a good look for the Gem State.
Two of the candidates, dark horses to put it mildly, are Harley Brown and Walt Bates, provided the entertainment in the forum.
"I am about as politically correct as your proverbial turd in a punch bowl," Brown said during the debate.
"Our forests are like growing tomatoes, well they are pretty red don't pick 'em," Bates said during the debate.
Fulcher said he's not impressed with the spectacle the debate turned into and added he wasn't surprised.
