Lest We Furr-get: Silly Slogans
Should we cats mention again that we think Jon Huntsman is cute? We're just wondering, because we hope our suspicion that Huntsman is surging in New Hampshire isn't wishful thinking.
Not that we want him to get the nomination, of course. He'd be too good a candidate! Nope, we're more than happy to have the GOP pick a phony whose only genuine moments occur when he admits he likes to fire people — instead of a thoughtful, Mandarin-speaking conservative who could attract Democrats and independent voters.
Of course, it would be ironic (and delicious) if Huntsman's fine Sunday-debate retort to Romney over "country first" ended up being the decisive New Hampshire moment for him. Not just because he called Romney on his partisan playacting — but because the last Republican nominee, a decorated ex-POW, used that slogan. And then proceeded to make a mockery of it. You know how.
