OK, I admit it: I now admire the guy.

He’s calling his opponents nuts, although that isn’t his exact wording. Still, the meaning is clear, and it’s still more than our fully-controlled mainstream media can bring itself to do.

I’M SANE!!! wouldn’t usually be a winning campaign strategy, but in 2012, it might be the strategy that flies.

I’m certainly going to listen closely to what Huntsman has to say.



After taking to Twitter last week to declare his belief in evolution and global warming, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. sought again Sunday to cast himself as a moderate in a field of extreme Republican presidential candidates.

Huntsman said on ABC’s “This Week” that he “wouldn’t necessarily trust any” of his opponents on the economy, criticized Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann for suggesting that as president she would bring per-gallon gas prices below $2, and called Texas Gov. Rick Perry “unelectable.”

Bachmann is pandering to “tea party” supporters, he said.

“I just don’t know what world that comment would come from,” Hunstman said. “You know, we live in the real world. It’s grounded in reality. And gas prices just aren’t going to rebound like that.”

Asked about Perry’s view that global warming is a “scientific theory that has not been proven,” he called the Texas governor “on the wrong side of science and therefore in a losing position.”

“I think when you find yourself at an extreme end of the Republican Party, you make yourself unelectable,” Huntsman told ABC’s Jake Tapper.

Of Mitt Romney‘s position on taxes, Huntsman delivered a familiar critique: “You know, if we were to talk about his inconsistencies and the changes on various issues, we’d be here all afternoon.”

Huntsman, who served as President Obama’s ambassador to China, called the president too liberal.


Of course, he is loaded up with shit on his observation of the President; any cursory look at either his, or even Romney’s, records as Governor reveal 2 guys who are demonstrably to the left of Bushack HW Obama.

But But other than that tall tale of fractured fiction, he’s pretty on the money. He’s making the Rushpubliscum field interesting, for as long as he may last.
