Jon Huntsman back peddling faster than the evolutionary process

Via Politico,
Jon Huntsman earned a spate of positive headlines recently when he took aim at Rick Perry's skepticism about evolution and global warming, tweeting: "I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy."

But that doesn't mean Huntsman thinks evolution is a purely scientific process. In fact, Monday morning he suggested it has divine underpinnings.

During a "Fox and Friends" appearance, Huntsman reiterated that he trusts evolutionary science, but explained: "I believe in evolution. I think it’s part of God’s plan."
Yep, that'll help.  Way to quietly and creatively try to backtrack Jon.  

The real question about this is: who cares?  At under 1% approval the question has been asked whether he's campaigning for 2016 instead of 2012.  My supposition is that at the rate he's attracting new followers, he might be campaigning for 2112, because that's how long it will take him to get to double digits in the GOP primaries because let's face it, he's a liberal. 

It turns out 2112 is an ironic year - if you are a Rush fan you know the album of that name talks about a time when;
By 2112, the world is controlled by the "Priests of the Temples of Syrinx", who determine the content of all reading matter, songs, pictures - every facet of life.
Sounds like a progressive's paradise to me.

All of this is my roundabout way of saying today appears to be a slow news day.


  1. Of all the songs that *could* get stuck in my head after reading a blog post, Rush isn't so bad.

    And the meek shallll inherrrrit the earth...

  2. Growing up around here I was considered a heretic for not being into Rush. Over a long time they finally grew on me.

    Although I'm more of a Subdivisions guy, at least I get it (2112) now.
