EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

FOLKS, PLEASE, SIT DOWN.

FOLKS, THE CAIN TRAIN HAS BEEN

PERMANENTLY DERAILED AND NOW THE

QUESTION ON EVERYONE'S MINDS IS

WHO IS NEXT.

AND WHAT FORM OF TRANSPORTATION

WILL THEY COMPARE THEMSELVES TO?

I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHETHER

SANTORUM OR PERRY WILL BE THE

FIRST TO CLAIM THE RICKSHAW.

YOU SEE, THERE'S A LOT OF TALK

OUT THERE ABOUT JON HUNTSMAN NOW

THANKS TO A RECENT HUGE AD BUY

IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.

>> HIM.

>> THE WORLD IS LITERALLY

COLLAPSING AND NO ONE HAS SHOWN

UP WE CAN TRUST AS A

CONSERVATIVE.

>> WHO ACTUALLY HAS A CHANCE TO

WIN.

>> OUR GOVERNMENT'S FLABBY,

BLOATED AND WEAK.

WHY HAVEN'T WE HEARD OF THIS

GUY?

>> Stephen: GOOD QUESTION,

CRANKY OLD MAN IN CLOSE-UP,

MAYBE YOU HAVEN'T HEARD OF THIS

GUY BECAUSE THE AD YOU'RE IN WAS

ONLY RECENTLY FINANCED BY A BIG

CORPORATE SUGAR DADDY,

LITERALLY.

>> JON HUNTSMAN GETTING A LITTLE

MONETARY HELP FROM HIS DAD.

>> SOME OF THE MONEY THAT'S

GOING TOWARDS THESE ADS CAME

FROM JON HUNTSMAN'S FATHER.

>> HIS FATHER HAS DEEP FATHERS

AND IS FUNDING THE SUPER PAC.

>> Stephen: AND DADDY CAN

AFFORD THAT SUGAR.

JON HUNTSMAN SENIOR IS THE

BILLIONAIRE FOUNDER OF HUNTSMAN

CHEMICAL AND THE HUNTSMAN

CONTAINER CORPORATION, WHICH

INVENTED THE STYROFOAM FAST FOOD

BURGER CLAM ALCOHOL AS WELL AS

THE STYROFOAM IN MANY FAST FOOD

BURGERS.

NOW, FOLKS, I'VE GOT MY OWN

SUPER PAC, AND I KNOW CANDIDATES

AND SUPER PACS CANNOT LEGALLY

COORDINATE THEIR MESSAGING,

LUCKILY JON HUNTSMAN AND HIS DAD

ARE NOT COORDINATING.

>> WE DON'T TALK ABOUT THOSE

THINGS.

WE CAN'T.

>> Stephen: SEE.

THEY KNOW THE RULES.

THEY DON'T TALK ABOUT IT.

THEY RESTRICT THEIR DINNER TABLE

CONVERSATION TO THINGS LIKE,

"HEY, DAD, DO YOU WANT SOME MORE

CHICKEN AND DID YOU KNOW THAT

I'M CAMPAIGNING ONLY IN NEW

HAMPSHIRE WHERE MASSIVE AD BUY

WOULD REALLY BE GREAT.

PASS THE PEAS AND THE MONEY."

PLUS HUNTSMAN HAZLETT IT BE

KNOWN THAT HE DOES NOT WANT TO

BE SEEN AS HAVING AN ELECTION

DELIVERED TO HIM BY HIS FATHER'S

WEALTH.

HE WANTS TO EARN IT, JUST LIKE

HE EARNED HIS POSITION OF

CHAIRMAN OF HUNTSMAN CORPORATION

WORKING HIS WAY UP FROM HIS

FIRST JOB OUT OF COLLEGE, VICE

PRESIDENT.

PERSONALLY, I THINK JON HUNTSMAN

SHOULD BE GRATEFUL HIS DAD IS

GOING THROUGH A SUPER PAC

BECAUSE A PARENT WITH UNLIMITED

CASH COULD MAKE COMMERCIALS THAT

MIGHT BE EMBARRASSING, LIKE

THIS.

>> AMERICA'S BROKEN.

WE NEED A STRONG LEADER LIKE JON

HUNTSMAN WITH A PROVEN RECORD OF

ACHIEVEMENT, FOR INSTANCE, AT

JUST 18 MONTHS, JOHNNY STARTED

USING THE POTTY ALL BY HIMSELF.

HE'S A VISIONARY WHO COULD READ

BEFORE HE ENTERED PRESCHOOL.

IT'S NOT EVERY THREE-YEAR-OLD

THAT KNOWS THE WORD.

>> DON'T FORGET THE CHRISTMAS

PAGEANT.

>> KAREN, I'M TALKING.

>> HE WAS A LITTLE WISEMAN.

PEOPLE FORGOT ALL THE BABY

JESUS.

>> SCIENCE FAIR SILVER MEDALIST.

>> SO HANDSOME.

[LAUGHTER]

JON HUNTSMAN JUNIOR, THE NICEST

BOY.

>> HE BREAST-FED
