This is in six parts. Muslim bashing occurs in part 6. The tea party lady is just as amazing. Just...watch this all the way through.
Rodents of Unusual Size
auth error didn't allow me to link all six parts

Rodents of Unusual Size
oh yay there are actually more parts than I thought. It's Christmas come early!

This whole thing is mind breaking. Absolutely mind breaking.

I can only hope Basil Marceaux.com will someday run for POTUS.

Bless you, Rodents of Unusual Size, for bringing us this glory.

If having a wrestler named "Josephus -The Shelby Street Brawler" recite the pledge of allegiance isn't the craziest part of a gubernatorial debate video, you know you're watching something special.
The God of Biscuits
"If it's not in line with the constitution, it's all mute."

I need to start using that phrase.
TeenerTot
Is this for real?
TeenerTot
Aaaand it just gets better! The prude, the hippie, and the mental case. It's a set-up for a dirty joke.

This is a debate between all the 3rd party candidates that don't have any money. The actual race is between Mike McWherter (the son of a TN governor) and Bill Haslam. I doubt either of them would let themselves be seen in public with these people, much less debate them on television.

phalsebob
Are these the only choices? Surely not. I'm not yet convinced this isn't some Onion thing.

Basic Marceaux set us up the bomb!

2 minutes in we get our first taste of crazy with Josephus. I only wish I had more time to watch this at work.
Nithing
Spectacular. Can the people of Tennessee draft the moderator or something?
sosage
These three are my choices?!? Can I vote for the Shelby Street Brawler?
erratic
You owe it to yourself to watch this all the way through. I never thought that there could be another candidate who would make Basil Marceaux.com look erudite and insightful by comparison
themilkshark
I fucking love Tennessee
The God of Biscuits
Oh my gosh. In part 5, Basil goes on for about 5 minutes on his "genius invention" perpetual motion device.
Enjoy
Proposed Energy Solutions

Tea Party Lady: I love COAL. coal, coal, COAL.
Green Party Man: Human feces and cat tails.
Basil: Perpetual motion of course.

Miskimo
now be fair- he doesn't state that it is a perpetual motion machine. he just makes the entirely reasonable proposal that we place paddle wheels under our faucets to harness the energy.

kennydra
oh. my. god.

YES.

Part 2 involves Tea Party Lady, in response to the question of Medical Marijuana, responds:

"I oppose marijuana because it makes people passive. I also oppose alcohol. Alcohol clouds judgement. Marijuana clouds the spirit. That's why we have so many passive citizens that are afraid of guns."

Basil Marceaux responds:

"Thomas Jefferson bit his fingernail and got the ink... and smudged out when writing the Declaration of Independence, he crossed out servants and wrote citizens. He probably had a mug spot... a beer spot for a beer! Next to it."

Green Party Dude responds:

"Marijuana treats over 100 ailments. It is the most therapeutic treatment we have, as humans, in existence. ...Hemp oil is the closest in oil to blood, to human blood, oil. Hemp oil is closest to blood oil."
ASubmarineSandwich
Also, apparently the War of 1812 was fought over Britain blocking America's access to hemp.

THIS IS TRULY A DIALECTIC OF MADNESS.

Chalkdust
I really want to see the phrase "Carnival of Opinion" take off and I think this is a fine video to christen it with.
Chalkdust
special thanks to Chumbucket!

All the stars, all the stars ever.
Old_Zircon
That hippie guy for the Green party sure knows a lot about marijuana.
Old_Zircon
This just keeps getting better, this is one of the best things I've seen in a year.

Green Party candidate makes an AIDS joke in Part 4 at 7:38.
Old_Zircon
Plans for a perpetual energy machine around 5 minutes into part 5.
Crackersmack
I sincerely hope that Basil wins.

I would love to see a future where the electorate, fed up with having to chose between two identical corporatist candidates, starts electing ridiculous outsider candidates as a form of political protest.
Old_Zircon
I hate to resort to "X is like Y crossed with Z," but Basil Marceaux really does remind me of some kind of hybrid of Gene Ray and Rip Taylor sometimes.
Stopheles
Dear Sweet Jesus, now I know what Sylvestre Matuschkha felt like.

June states indirectly that she thinks the hippie should be hanged.

This video is the best thing ever.

holy fuck, just when you think it can't get any better, it does. every time

This video is a perpetual motion device of beautiful crazy.

It just keeps getting better. Oh man.

Part 4, in response to his own question.
"This Gunn'be a tough one." and "I'm above the law because I'm marine, force recon."
snothouse
The best long-form improv ever.

Parts 6 and 11.

Wow!
dr_mr_vandertramps
part 11 in particular is just absolutely insane.

Amazing.
Rodents of Unusual Size
added the "carnival of opinion" tag. Feel free to link to it.

I am so glad you guys enjoy this as much as me.

I especially love the part where he starts interrupting people about his sleep deprivation and almost falls asleep at the podium. Oh, Basil, you truly deserve your own reality series.
Rodents of Unusual Size
I wish Chris Farley were still alive to play him on SNL skits.

Rodents of Unusual Size
"THEY TALKED SPANISH TO HER! NOT ENGLISH! IN AMERICA??? AT BURGER KING!"

dangerously
instant classic
homogenousemptytime
Loved the debate in part 11 about where native americans are from... "they're from asia and they walked over the strait from europe" "jefferson said they were from Greece"

Thank you, ROUS,

PART 12!!!
Squeamish
In the future, political scientists will point to this debate as the purest expression of politics in 2010 America.
chumbucket
I fall in love with this country every time I see something like this. No one, not even the best sketch comedy troupe could create an amazing show as this is. Rodents Of Unusual Size has unearthed a gem of a video here that honors all that poeTV stands for (and the reason I watch videos here). May this forever go in the museum of poeTV as pure record of the decade of the "Carnival of Opinion". Amen. (returns old flag back to the podium)
asian hick
I feel bad killing a perfect 5.0 but the guy is clearly mentally ill and has been exploited by everyone including his relatives. That really diminishes my enjoyment of this.

And yes I know E is for evil and all that but I'm just not feeling it on this one.
