• Jon Huntsman's Rising Popularity Miraculously Coincides with His New Anti-Climate Change Beliefs

    Newt Gingrich has been the Republican frontrunner for well over a week now, so that means it's just about time for somebody else to take over the position. But who's left? Can't be Gary Johnson or Fred Karger because they think that gay people are people, and it can't be Rick Santorum because he's Rick Santorum. I suppose that means it's got to be Jon Huntsman.

    Which probably also means that we can probably be expecting a retraction of his previous statements that science exists in three… two

    In a move that's sure to endear him to the conservatives who are starting to warm up to the former Utah governor, Huntsman said Tuesday under questioning from TPM that he now believes there’s “more debate yet to play out” before we can be sure climate change is really happening…

    "[T]here is — there are questions about the validity of the science, evidenced by one university over in Scotland recently," Huntsman said, referring to the East Anglia University conspiracy that continues to fuel climate change skepticism. "I think the onus is on the scientific community to provide more in the way of information, to help clarify the situation."

    "The East Anglia University conspiracy"? Where have I heard that before? Oh, right! Everywhere! Climategate! If anthropomorphic climate change is a real thing, then how come nobody — besides those six investigative committees — ever bothered to clear up that manufactured controversy? Sounds like an admission of guilt to me.

    At any rate, I'm glad to see that Huntsman is finally starting to publicly debase himself before the lowest common denominator voting bloc of his party and tarnish his record in a desperate attempt to grasp hold of power see reason.
