And, albeit that it’s not quite as magnificent as getting a PayPal Alert that the Imperial Tip Jar has triggered a DHS Suspicious Possible Terrorist Massive Funds Transfer Alert™, we’ll take it. Of course, it does mean that we won’t have Governor whatsisface to kick around anymore. But, then again, we were barely aware that he was even in the race in the first place.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Jon M. Huntsman Jr. informed his advisers on Sunday that he intends to drop out of the Republican presidential race, ending his candidacy a week before he had hoped to revive his campaign in the South Carolina primary.

Ah. THAT’S his name! “Hunts-something”. Oops, we already forgot again.

“Hoped to revive his campaign in South Carolina?” We do know that hope springs eternal in the chest of mortal man, but isn’t that stretching it a bit? A northeastern liberal hoping to surge to the front in South Carolina? It’s much like hoping that “Santa Ana” will surge to become the most popular name to give your infant in Texas.

Mr. Huntsman, who had struggled to live up to the soaring expectations of his candidacy,

“Soaring expectations?” Among whom, exactly? Oh yes, this article is from the New York Times, without whom nobody in the whole damn nation would have even known he was running.

made plans to make an announcement as early as Monday. He had been set to participate in an evening debate in Myrtle Beach.

Matt David, campaign manager to Mr. Huntsman, confirmed the decision in an interview Sunday evening. “The governor and his family, at this point in the race, decided it was time for Republicans to rally around a candidate who could beat Barack Obama and turn around the economy,” Mr. David said. “That candidate is Gov. Mitt Romney.”

Well knock US over with a feather! How unexpectedly! And here we had “soaring expectations” that he’d be endorsing Rick Perry. We’re in complete shock here. Who could have possibly foreseen?

Buh-bye, Huntsman “Juggernaut”, and don’t let the door hit you where the Good L-rd split you. If you’re planning on making another run in the future, it might help if you started adopting some actual conservative policies first. Just saying, ‘s all. Oh no, that one’s a freebie. No need to grovel.

Thatisall.

LOOSE SHIT OR “GOT MY DICK CAUGHT IN THE FACT CHECKER” UPDATE: As both LC readerjp and Southern Libertarian point out to us, there is nothing northeastern about Governor Whatitsface, being a Utah transplant from the Peepul’s Republik of Kalifornistan. We claim advanced age and pre-senile dementia on that one. OK, you got us. Happy now? Good job. On the other hand, it only goes to show just how much of an inconsequential nobody he is, not to mention that we’ll maintain to our dying day that he’d fit in perfectly with the Peepul’s Collective of Taxachusetts. Nobody would even know that he wasn’t from around there.

Alright. Enough bad excuses. Didn’t do our Imperial Homework there and, besides, not fair to blame that twit on the northeast as well.

Not to step all over a thread about Jon Huntsman, ah hell he should be well acquainted with nobody listening to him at this point…

So it has recently been made very clear to me that I don’t know enough about the First World War. Book recommendations anyone?

……And he’s telling his supporters, ALL three of them, to support Mittens, what a shit-eatin’ surprise.

He was a non-starter from the beginning. C’mon did anyone even think he was a conservative? He along with most of the MSM lined up to lick Ogabe’s balls. That was a major, MAJOR clue. He was Obama’s cabana boy all along. Good Riddance and now we continue to sort through a dwindling group of adults. Rick- S.C. is your… Read more »

One of my Jewish friends called me yesterday. She just couldn’t help but ask me who I was going to vote for. Then she went on and on about what trouble we are in this country. She asked me why are we in such trouble. I told her because you and all your Jewish friends voted in Zippy. Then added… Read more »

One more thing, I believe very highly in serving one’s country. It shouldn’t matter who is in the white house when an individual answers the call to serve. I would never want to make it mandatory but I believe that every individual at one point or another should serve his or her country, state or local community in some fashion.… Read more »

Yes and yes. We in the military didn’t choose our commander-in-chief either, and I served honorably under Clinton, as I did under Bush. I do think Huntsman’s biggest problem was him buying into the envirowacko crusade.

Agreed.
If it weren’t for that I would have considered supporting him.

I’m glad someone else stepped up to defend Huntsman, as he really was a conservative playing identity politics, a mistake in a race where Romney already dibsed ‘moderate’. He was my first choice for President, based on his economic plan and foreign experience. And now that he’s out of it, I’m terribly tempted to switch to Ron Paul.
