Once again, Jon Huntsman shows why he's the coolest guy running for president (even if he's got no chance of winning).
Over the weekend, the former Utah governor appeared on the "Weekend Update" segment of "Saturday Night Live," in a sketch with Seth Meyers highlighting Huntsman's all-or-nothing campaign push in New Hampshire.
When asked if he was alienating the other states by focusing on New Hampshire, Huntsman replied, "I love all of America, from Dallas, Texas, to Manchester, New Hampshire. From the majestic Rocky Mountains to New Hampshire's scenic Lake Winnapausake. From the innovation of Silicon Valley to the affordable outlet malls in North Conway, New Hampshire."
When Meyers noted that he is a New Hampshire native, Huntsman countered, "Well, that makes sense. Because you're kind and good-looking -- classic New Hampshire." When Meyers said Granite Staters didn't fall for such flattery, Huntsman said, "wise, like a Dartmouth professor."
Finally, Huntsman asked Meyers if his parents, who live in New Hampshire, were registered to vote. Meyers said his mom is a registered Democrat, and his dad is an independent.
"Well, say hi to your dad for me," Huntsman said.
Huntsman did score some cool points, but he got upstaged by Meyers' other guest presenter on "Weekend Update": Kermit the Frog.
