In case you missed it, this has be seen to be believed.
Florida Governor Rick Scott refused to take the stage at the gubernatorial debate last night because Charlie Crist had a small fan under his podium.
The real awkwardness begins around 50 seconds into the above video. The crowd in attendance broke out into laughter and then boos after the debate moderators announced that Governor Scott would not participate in the debate because of the small fan under Crist’s podium.
Rick Scott eventually took the stage several minutes later.
I can’t recall a more embarrassing debate moment this side of “oops” or “please proceed.”
