Huntsman daughters: Campaign calls us 'their secret weapon'
The Hill ^ | Nov 6, 2011 | Meghashyam Mali

Posted on 11/09/2011 12:46:55 PM PST by bkopto

Fresh off their spoof of a Herman Cain campaign video, GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman's daughters aren't finished yet.

Appearing on CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday, three of Huntsman's daughters who participated in the parody said they might have a sequel in the works and joked that they were the campaign's "secret weapon."

"We're always up to something," said Abby Huntsman, daughter of the former Utah governor.

"Something might be coming. You'll have to tune in," her sister Liddy Huntsman added.

Liddy also took credit for the concept. "I had been receiving e-mails and I had seen the Herman Cain ad all over the place," she said. "...And I was like, this could be actually something we could spoof and make it, you know, age-appropriate and blow bubbles."

Last month, the Cain campaign released an unorthodox ad that ended with Chief of Staff Mark Block smoking a cigarette. The Huntsman parody ad released shortly after featured all three girls wearing mustaches similar to Block's and blowing bubbles at the end of the video.

Mary Anne Huntsman said that the "campaign is now calling us their secret weapon."

Great. I suppose THEY were groped by Herman Cain, too.

The more I learn about this Huntsman’s tactics, the less I like him.

Oh, no! Three more idiot girls who can appear on the talk shows and pretend to know what the Republican Party should do.

One Meghan is more than enough.

Great secret weapons seeing as Huntsman polls maybe 1% or non-existent nationally. Seriously, this RINO needs to drop the hell out. Or maybe he’s sticking around in hopes of being Mittens’ running mate. And you thought the white RINO was on the endangered list.

Two ultra wealthy trust fund babies. That is the Republican ticket of Democrats dreams. They are both Mormons as well. The Democrats can't wait to start on the Mormon Thing.

Its so secret in fact that people think he's not running, or he's just being completely ignored.

Because coy, silly, teasing nonsense, just might get Dad the Democrat elected?

Definitely a “secret weapon” on the level of Big Boy.

The biggest secret of all is what is keeping him in this race. Who donates to Huntsman? Romney has a lock on the RINOs and no conservative would support him.

There isn’t a thing I like about Huntsman. Even his campaign logo bothers me: it looks like it belongs on a cheap men’s clothing line.

Someone really needs to clue the Huntsman campaign in that no one in the GOP actually wanted him in the race - he only filed because Bammy’s peeps said he was “skeered” of him.

Oh dear

Willie Mitty has no daughters...

and the wind just told his finger that that would be the way to go...

Doesnt he wish he had some daughters now so that he could have a “secret weapon” too...

All he has are those five useless sons...

maybe he could get them to dress up in blonde wigs anf heels and parody a Cain AD too...

Mitty, dont forget the Palin Pink lippy...

Huntsman appears to be a modern-day Harold Stassen. “Hey, everybody, look at me!!!” says Huntsman jumping up and down hoping to be noticed.

That would be himself and Daddy. He's loaned his campaign a lot of money, and Daddy is loaded. Daddy is a very nice man. Son is too full of himself and a nanny stater. Doesn't think the little people are capable of deciding what's in their best interest, so it's up to people like him to run for office, then put policies in place to take care of us and make decisions for us.
