Jon Huntsman’s YouTube page is clean as a whistle, baby, so I’m suggesting a new theme song for the last few minutes of a campaign that couldn’t be over soon enough for the tastes of the vast majority of Republicans.
I could say that Huntsman’s performance in New Hampshire is about as notable as Santorum’s in Iowa, but that would be unfair to Santorum. Like Santorum, Huntsman decided to stake it all on one state. Unlike Santorum, he didn’t even come close. Has anyone except the DC media ever shown a lick of excitement over this guy? Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich and Santorum all had their moment in the sun, but Huntsman couldn’t even attract a stray sunbeam. His effort to claw some attention from the rest of the pack was notable only for the clever and cutting anti-Romney ads that will surely appear again this Fall, if Newt doesn’t re-use them first. He’s proven himself uninspiring as a candidate, he’s useless as a spokesman for Romney after those ads, and he used a hell of a lot of Daddy’s money to run his campaign as a vanity project during the last few months. The only smart move he’s made is to get out of the race. Overall, I think he would have been better off as a fantasy object for Sully and Brooks, because the glow is off this golden boy for 2016.
