This has got to be one of the most unusual interview questions ever for a presidential candidate.

Tuesday night at CNN’s “Politics on Tap” event in Boulder, Colorado, special guest bartender Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was asked old bar game question: “Date, Marry, or Make Disappear” — with the choices of Sarah Palin, Carly Fiorina, and Hillary Clinton — though as CNN’s Dana Bash admitted, she did clean up the word “date” from originally being something that “rhymes with truck.”

“We can’t go beyond dating,” Graham said. “That’s as far as I’m going, dating.”

(Note: In this little game, “make disappear” is also supposed to be “kill.”)

Graham’s responses:

  • Dating: “Sarah Palin — we’ll go hunting on our first date.”
  • Marry: “Carly, ’cause she’s rich — she could keep me in the life I’ve become accustomed to — and I’m a very practical guy.”
  • So, “make disappear” for Hillary Clinton? “Is she rich? She said she was ‘flat broke.'”

Graham will be at tonight’s undercard debate hosted by CNBC, for the lower-tier candidates. Let’s see what questions he’ll get asked there.
