Watch the Wackiest Political Debate You Will Ever See

By Dan Joseph | October 24, 2014 | 11:21am EDT

Vermont has this strange habit of allowing all of the candidates who are running for public office participate in their televised debates, regardless of how insane they are or how viable their candidacy may be.

The most recent debate between Incumbent Governor Peter Shumlin and six of his opponents is one of the most hilarious pieces of political theater that I have ever seen.  Here are some of the highlights.


Based on what I've seen here, were I a citizen of the Green Mountain State I would have no choice but to proudly cast my vote for Cris Ericson.

She's the lady in the huge hat who presented her theory that people  on food stamps can't afford to buy fruits and vegetables with them and therefore buy lottery tickets instead, hoping that they win and can purchase fruits and vegetables with the money.

Her logic is unassailable, people!

It's unclear whether any of these second tier candidates will receive a bump in the polls because of their stellar debate performances. But Governor Shumlin better watch his back.  Not in electoral terms.  Literally. These people are clearly insane.  Hopefully they won't take their Election Day pummelings  so hard  that they decide to take over the governors mansion by force.  But after watching that video, would you be surprised if that happened?
