Seattle P-I: Idaho’s Strange Politicians

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter sought to spread the playing field on Wednesday, insisting that two bearded perennial candidates join a televised debate between the incumbent governor and his serious Republican primary challenger State Sen. Russ Fulcher. The result was the Idaho’s biggest national political hit since then-U.S. Sen. Larry Craig explained a disorderly conduct arrest in a Minneapolis airport bathroom — he allegedly propositioned an undercover cop –by saying he takes a “wide stance” when relieving himself/Joel Connelly, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Strange Bedfellows. More here.

Question: Do you think Harley Brown & his Merry Guv Band will be the biggest hit since Larry Craig & his Wide Stance?
