Thought of the day

There are a few nationally known Republicans I like. Jon Huntsman is one of them.

More reason to respect Jon Huntsman

It seems like this is the only guy in the Republican field with any common sense:

The conservative news magazine Newsmax announced Friday that it would co-sponsor a Republican presidential debate moderated by media personality and real estate tycoon Donald Trump on Dec. 27th in Des Moines, Ia., but they may have trouble convincing candidates to show up.

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is the first to send his regrets.

“We look forward to watching Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich suck up to Trump with a big bowl of popcorn,” Huntsman spokesman Tim Miller told Yahoo News.

It is beyond me why so many of these candidates have taken the time to meet with Trump. He’s a doofus with nothing to add to anything. He knows less about taxes and foreign policy than Herman Cain, he isn’t the least bit intelligent, and every show he has ever done has been shitty. But maybe that’s it. Maybe it’s his ignorance, his stupidity, and his inability to entertain that draws so many Republicans to him. After all, who do Republicans like? People like Bush and (until the recent news about how he uses his wiener) Cain – stupid and/or ignorant people. People like Steve Doocy and that guy on Fox & Friends who isn’t Steve Doocy – people who can’t entertain. Maybe it all does make sense.

I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.

That would only be a crazy thing for someone seeking the Republican presidential nomination to say. Someone like the only remotely reasonable candidate in the field, Jon Huntsman.
