Idaho Debate Wackiness: GOP Amateurs Hijack Event, Spawn Viral Video

Video of the Idaho GOP primary debate for the governorship went viral this week after two wacky challengers espoused some not-so-politically-correct opinions, confessed embarrassing secrets, and boasted about breaking the law.

Two-term Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter and state Sen. Russ Fulcher looked on with amusement at their amateur competition, Walt Bayes and Harley Brown, likely convinced they were in a "Saturday Night Live" skit, The Washington Post reported.

"Don't think I'm crazy, 'cause I'm not!" said Brown during his opening remarks dressed in a leather hat, biker gear, and sporting an impressive beard.

According to Gawker, Walt Bayes, a balding elderly man who sports an even more impressive beard, said during his remarks, "I went to jail for homeschoolin', and my kids turned out pretty good."

The four candidates then continued on for nearly an hour's worth of excruciating but ultimately hilarious debate, with Otter and Fulcher seemingly content to hang back and let the other two characters have at it.

Priceless lines from the night included Brown's "I’ve got a master’s in raising hell," "Taxes are a drag," and "I’m about as politically correct as your proverbial turd in a punchbowl."

From Bayes, viewers got bombarded with statements like, "I did kill a wolf, when it was still an endangered species," "half of the Democratic Party is Communists," and "take Idaho back from the federal government."

If the right producers get their hands on these two, reality TV might soon get very entertaining.
