The Associated Press (AP) is reporting Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman is dropping out of the 2012 campaign circus and will be – no big surprise – endorsing Willard Mittens Romney, bringing dozens of new supporters to Romney.
Reportedly Huntsman will endorse Mittens because he believes Romney is the best candidate to beat President Barack Obama in November (and he’s the only person still running who isn’t a lunatic or adulterer). Campaign manager Matt David said Huntsman will announce his withdrawal at an event in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Huntsman was virtually invisible throughout the race, being pummeled in the Iowa caucuses and placing a distant third in New Hampshire, and his chances of winning South Carolina were not looking particularly good; of course if Huntsman had bothered to ask any “normal” American – meaning anyone who isn’t an uber-conservative rich white guy – then he’d have known there wasn’t a snow ball’s chance of him ever winning the GOTP nomination much less the Presidency – c’mon when you’re more bland than milk toast how can you win in today’s media charged world?
That said however, now the debates will no longer have any sense of “normalcy”, it’s full throttled Looney Tunes from here on out.
