It had to happen, and it’s probably a good thing. The two least bashful members of the Tennessee General Assembly, Democratic state Senate leader Lee Harris and Republican state Senator Brian Kelsey arranged to hold a “twitter debate” at noon today on subjects ranging from Insure Tennessee to school vouchers to guns issuers and racial profiling.

“To follow along,” one needs only to select either @LeeHarris4MTOWN OR @BrianKelsey.

Says the news release, from the office of the Senate Democratic Caucus: “Each Senator will pose two questions each and engage each other for about five minutes on each topic. They will not retweet or respond to other followers to keep the format simple.”

We’re not making this up.
