Handsome future president of the United States Jon Huntsman just disclosed his personal wealth in a government filing, and it's maybe slightly larger than your savings account.
According to a boring document from the U.S. Office of Government Ethics (HA!), Huntsman has between $15 million and $66 million. Kind of a wide range, huh? Well, this particular doc doesn't require exact numbers, just a a ballpark guesstimate of how freaking rich a presidential candidate is.
Of course, Huntsman isn't the wealthiest dude on the Republican block — that honor goes to Mittens Romney, who reported wealth of between $190 million to $250 million. But assuming Jonny's wealth is smack-dab in the middle of his reported range, we're still talking $40.5 million to play with.
Considering the fact that every new president redecorates the White House, let's predict what kinds of cool things Jon Huntsman will add to his new home once he takes office in 2013…
* A flock of trained flamingos who perform choreographed dances to the music of Rush upon request
* A second Oval Office — but this one is made entirely of Jell-O (Mormons love Jell-O!)
* Lincoln's reanimated corpse, thanks to a pricey but effective necromancer
* REO Speedwagon
* A moderate, sensible brand of Republicanism that advocates smaller government, not intrusion into the bedrooms of citizens
Haha! J/K, that last one was just a crazy, ridiculous joke. Forget we even said anything, 'cuz that one will NEVER happen.
