Democratic Candidate Tells Male Debate Moderator He Is 'prettier Than' Candy Crowley By TOBY HARNDEN 19 October 2012 19 October 2012
A Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate joked with the male moderator of a televised debate that he was 'prettier' than Candy Crowley, the CNN who refereed this week's presidential debate. After an intense exchange during Thursdays Senate debate in Arizona, moderator Brahm Resnik quipped: 'Now I know how Candy Crowley felt, Jeez..'
Richard Carmona, former U.S. Surgeon General, responded to the reference to Crowley's difficulties officiating between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by saying: 'Youre prettier than her.'
Prettier? Democrat candidate Richard Carmona had to apologise after saying Arizona senate debate moderator Brahm Resnik (left) was better looking than presidential debate moderator Candy Crowley (right) Resnik filled the awkward silence by laughing and saying breezily: 'I'm not sure how to take that.' Carmona, who was locked in a very tight race with Representative Jeff Flake, the Republican candidate, before the debate later apologised.
'I tried to tell a joke to lighten the mood in a debate,' he said in a brief statement to Politico. 'I shouldn't have, and I'm sorry.'

He could have used the same joke if the moderator had been a jar full of smashed buttholes...
Yup, he got hisself a real purdy mouth.
So who isn't? I have a pet frog who is prettier than Candy (Candy the Hutt) Crowley.
She a beast!
Do you suppose any of the reporters got drunk enough on free beer at the debate to hit it?
Resnik is a Lib reporter. He might not have thought it was so funny if Flake said it.
The things ya see when ya ain’t got yer tongue scraper.
I didn’t realize FR had ceased to be family friendly.
Damning with faint praise.
Finally, in this election cycle, a Democrat candidate that told the truth . . .
I’m not going to say Candy Crowley is unfortunate-looking. I’m just going to say to Carnie Wilson, that could be you in twenty years if you’re not careful.
Hell: Mike Tyson is prettier than Candy Crowley.
and weighs less.
My husband and I were tuning in to the debate on Tuesday. My dear husband - who does not watch CNN ever, turns to me and casually asked, “Who’s the troll”? I had to retrieve my ice cubes from across the room :)
There’d be hell to pay in the Republican had said that!
