Republican clown car loses another passenger: Jon Huntsman quitting GOP12 circus sideshow

Awww — no more Huntsman? But-but-but upon whom are Villagers now supposed to project their immodest (and DOA) hopes and dreams for a POTUS who is simultaneously milquetoast and manly (whatever that means — apparently it has something to do with clearing brush and filling a codpiece)?

No surprise on the Romney endorsement (can you really imagine Huntsman giving the nod to Ron Paul or Rick Santorum, much less Newt effing Gingrich? I mean, without hitting the bong first)  although, as ThinkProgress notes, Jon-boy’s jump to the Romney camp pretty much hands the non-Mormons on the bill an attack ad fodder freebie:

The Jon Huntsman campaign escalated its attacks on front-runner Mitt Romney the night before the New Hampshire primary, with Huntsman himself telling CNBC host Larry Kudlow that Romney is making himself “completely unelectable.”

He didn’t really say that, did he?

HUNTSMAN: First of all, you’ve got to get elected to office for heaven’s sake, and making statements like that you render yourself completely unelectable. Whether you’re referring to economic policy, it really becomes more of a political issue, when you’ve got the Chicago political machine and $1 billion bearing down on you. You make a statement like, you talk about pink slips, and pretty soon you’re going to lose the high ground.

Just in case you were, for some reason, indisposed in any way last week, here’s how Mittens inspired Huntsman’s bold (if ill-thought) declaration:

Yeah. Bet they’re on pins and needles 24/7 in the White House watching the self-inflicted GOP nomination carnage. PINS AND NEEDLES.
