This explains the Obama administrations glowing words for him the other day and why Republicans should emulate him.

I hope we can get either a real conservative or Super Dell in that office.

At least if its Super Dell we can get some entertainment value out it. We will all be able to chuckle on our way to the unemployment line.

And to think that certain groups were pimping this loser as a potential GOP candidate for 2012...bah!

Super Dell is a somewhat eccentric, quite outspoken Utah local former gun store owner.

This is the guy the Obama crowd was worried about as a possible GOP Prez candidate in 2012. They got him out of the way real quick!

The Lieutenant Governor, Gary Herbert, who will succeed, is described as Huntsman’s political opposite, a traditional Utah conservative

Jon Huntsman is one of the GOP “modernizers” who is constantly lecturing the party that we have to “moderate” and shift to the center. In my opinion, good riddence. Utah can find a more principled conservative to serve as governor.

Utah will be better off. China seems like the perfect place to send him. Cuba would be good, as well.
