Huntsman Daughters Interview Romney Bobblehead in Lost Video

our father's daughters no more!

Huntsman daughters Abby, Liddy and Mary Anne had a couple of great videos during their dad’s mercurial campaign. They were the only entertaining part — besides, maybe, “Did you hear what I just said?” — of the whole thing. But their best work was never actually released…until now! An ABC News station got a hold of this Romney-bashing video, in which the two non-blondes in the trio don blonde wigs to match their sister Liddy and interview a bobbleheaded version of Mitt Romney on a show they call “Foxes and Friends.” The girls were declared to have “gone rogue” by a campaign insider a couple of months ago, so it’s no wonder this was never officially released. Now it does, happily, take the shine off Huntsman’s already completely unbelievable and dull endorsement of Romney.

The video, which so far only appears in an ABC News segment:

If the Huntsman girls weren’t actually funny, it might have seemed a little too ambitious that the telegenic 20-somethings kept showing up on TV. But as Abby said in a GQ interview last year, it wasn’t like she could get a gig on Fox News if she wanted to, because “I’m not blonde.” Fittingly, in this video the three do their best airhead anchor impression, repeating their lines unnecessarily, checking their manicures, calling Romney a “cornball,” and asking tough questions, like whether he’d be prepared to face a honey badger given his hunting experience is only with “small varmint.”

Big-headed renderings of Romney in the media now outnumber actual Romney media appearances by something like 234829852810026 to 1. [ABC 4 via BuzzFeed]

    1. OneDollarJuana

      Those are some very attractive young ladies. I'm sure they will make one man a good Mormon husband.

    2. OhNoGuy

      If I stay out in the sun too long the top of my head gets red. Does this mean I'm a member of the clan?

  1. UnholyMoses

    "Huntsman daughters Abby, Liddy and Mary Anne"

    Needs moar Ginger.*

    ('Cause hot redheads are HAWT!)

          1. glasspusher


            I consider myself blond, but lately with the crew cut, people call me redhead.

            Please advise…

  2. Tundra Grifter

    Just one more reason Gov. Huntsman didn't have a real chance to drive the GNoPee clown car.

    This party takes Ole Newt seriously, and dismisses Gov. Huntsman?


  3. savethispatient

    Have I missed my opportunity to collect the whole Republican Field 2012 Bobble-head range? Can I trade a Santorum for a Bachmann?

  4. SorosBot

    But wait, according to Christopher Hitchens and David Letterman's now-fired booker, women can't be funny!

  5. Texan_Bulldog

    The only thing I notice (other than the corniness) is how much smarter they all seem than Bristol. I don't think any of these girls would be getting drunk on wine coolers in a tent & getting knocked up.

    1. MissTaken

      Getting drunk on wine coolers in a tent and getting knocked up is the only way to catch yourself a husband, or herpes.

    2. OhNoGuy

      "I don't think any of these girls would be getting drunk on wine coolers in a tent & getting knocked up."
      Go ahead, crush my dreams.

  6. freakishlywrong

    The girls are cute. I just can't get over the "Romney is unelectable and divisive, so I'm endorsing him" father.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Unelectable and divisive, but still "best equipped".
      Translation: "He's the smartest clown left in the car."

      1. ShaveTheWhales

        And LSD. I suspect Huntsman would be in some trouble with the Prophet if he endorsed anyone but Willard.

      2. OhNoGuy

        Really, just because he has cute spawn doesn't mean he should be president. Like Willard, he grew up in the twin bubbles of wealth and Mormonism.

  7. SayItWithWookies

    That was amusing and entertaining — no wonder Huntsman dropped out, then — any candidate whose own daughters aren't Republican isn't fit to lead this great nation.

    1. Negropolis

      Oh, they are very much Republicans. I imagine that they are in the same vein as Meghan McCain. You know, they are Republicans because they have rich parents, but don't care much about the social stuff, or either care about it enough to actually be socially liberal. If the older generation would allow them, we'd have Republicans like they used to be; you know, corporate cocksuckers that stayed out of other people's bedrooms.

  8. lefty74

    I hope these women have been properly instructed in the appropriate methodology of how to eat a banana at your desk. Lest they appear Bachmannesque. Break off a chunk. Do not eat the whole thing while scratching the back of your head.

    1. Guppy

      Who was the first person to think of substituting "faux" for "fox" and have they been thoroughly beaten for their heinous crime yet?

  9. Callyson

    "If you were attacked by, say, a honey badger, would you be able to defend yourself"
    "Why, of course I could: I'd pay that honey badger off and deduct the amount from my taxes as a business expense…"

    1. OhNoGuy

      Well, what if the honey badger didn't care, what if the honey badger didn't give a shit. What if the honey badger grabbed hold of your nuts and wouldn't let go? I'd like to see how you'd do during a debate or a news conference then.

      (I'd stay behind the podium and try to smile a lot. By no means should you exercise your Second Amendment Rights. You could lose a lot more than your Freedoms.)

  10. BaldarTFlagass

    Pretty scrumptious indeed. I won't watch/listen, just in case they have Fran Drescher voices.

    1. Texan_Bulldog

      They don't. They speak and enunciate very well…thus my earlier post contrasting them with the princess of Wasilla. I think a uterus is the only thing they all have in common.

    2. Negropolis

      Nah, they have proper Utahan accents, which is to say they really don't have an accent at all, and nice speaking tones.

    1. SayItWithWookies

      He's been returned to the world from which he came — as an extra in the original version of The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3.

      1. horsedreamer_1

        He'll prolly come back to Sconsin to commit pro-Walker voter fraud & intimidation in the recall.

  11. Goonemeritus

    I know his basic platform is largely indistinguishable from his running mates but I blame that on the party’s purity test. From what I have seen of the guy he appears to be thoughtful and smart. What I will never understand is why he would let that party and those candidates define his brand. The guy has all the money in the world a beautiful family and an honorable record of public service. Were I in that position I would sit this cycle out. The Republican base has been whipped up into a sub psychotic rage back away and let them figure it out on their own.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      What's an intelligent conservative to do? He's a man without a party, and the rest of the GOP's clown parade is an embarassment to the country. Maybe Obama will be able to put him to work, once the insanity of the election year subsides.

  12. MiniMencken

    What, do I have to be the one in this thread? O.K., O.K. "I would totally hit that (threesome)."

  13. LiveToServeYa

    Your move, Sasha and Malia. Also, the Huntsman daughters will make great wives for some lucky man, someday.

    1. Negropolis

      Very well played…

      But, yeah, when does the youtube of Sasha, Malia & Co. doing the Beyonce "Single Ladies" routine in the Green Room leak? That's what all the kids are doing these days, right?

  14. Allmighty_Manos

    Just because I would tap your daughters doesn't mean you get my vote. Unless, I actually got to tap them. I'd even settle for just two.

  15. thefrontpage

    I once had a wild night of hard partying sexual activities with all three of the Huntsmen daughters–a foursome, yes–at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel Candidate's Suite, and I'm telling you, it was great. Those Huntsman girls like to party! They also like each other very much! They drank tequlia and Wild Turkey, and smoked some green, leafy substance–possibly pot–from a hookah all night long! And they insisted that the music be heavy metal and hard rock! I have five hours worth of video, if anyone wants to watch. It was great. I can't wait to see what's in store at the CPAC convention in February at the hotel!!

        1. thefrontpage

          This actually happened! I have the video if you want to watch it! There's five hours' worth, but you'll probably be good watching just two hours.

      1. Negropolis

        Al Gore, of course. Little known fact, ole Al never left the Navel Observatory. You just have to work around him, like Cheney did.

  16. real_dc_native

    We are lucky to live in this historic age where we can witness first hand the deconstruction and self inflicted destruction of a political party. Sigh, if there were only a viable party to fill the political vacuum.

  17. BaldarTFlagass

    How come is it when them mission Mormons come to my house trying to sell me on the magic underpants, I always get the geeky pimply-faced kids with the white shirts and skinny black ties, and no one even approaching looking like these Mormons. 'Taint fair, I tellz ya.

    1. Baconzgood

      Several years ago I was on vacation from work and the Mormons came to my door on a Wednesday. I had just made some lemon aid and invited them in for a nice cool glass. When they entered my house I closed the door and clicked the dead bolt and asked "how do they know what houses your at and when?". Needless to say they were pretty anxious to leave my house and didn't touch the lemon aid.

      1. real_dc_native

        I had some kind of missionaries show up at my door much too early on a Saturday morning. I welcomed them in and told them how happy I was that they were there. Then I went into the next room and grabbed a couple of random physics books (yes I'm THAT kind of nerd). I came back and asked them excitedly "Have you heard the good news about SCIENCE?" After some awkward silence, they left and I haven't been bothered since.

  18. Gleem_McShineys

    I kept waiting for the FOX-style upskirt shots. Purely for scientific research about magic underwear, of course.

  19. BornInATrailer

    First Newt's open marriage request, now this. I'm up and down like Bob Dole or Jimmy Johnson.

  20. actor212

    I find it disturbing that a whip-smart and sassy bunch of commenters such as those at teh Wonkette would be so fixated on fapping.

    Cuz I thought it was just me. And here I've been doing therapy for it.

    1. real_dc_native

      I know. I've been having trouble with that ad with the pitcher of ice tea. When I catch out of the corner of my I always think it's tits of a nice round ass. Then I realize what it is and think about how I'm a disturbed pervert or something. But reading the comments always makes me think that I might be normal.

  21. chascates

    Still waiting on that porno tape to emerge featuring the Huntsman daughters and the Romney sons.

  22. rocktonsam

    seems kinda like "Vital Issues and Stuff" with Kelly Bundy, without the band.

    they're moarman and rich.


  23. Barb

    Okay, by a show of hands, which of our male Wonkette friends would bone these gals and not care that they are Mormon?

  24. OC_Surf_Serf

    Only if ya can figure out the Magic Underwear's damn release clips…

    (and you thought fumbling with a bra was tough!)

  25. ph7

    It's very hard for the legions of Wonkteers to type a reply with their hands in the air (I'm dictating this response).

  26. SorosBot

    Oh definitely; I think there's not a straight man (or lesbian) here who wouldn't. And this post definitely helps get over the mental images of Gingrich sex from the last one.

  27. UnholyMoses

    **raises hand that's had a wedding ring removed from it in haste**

    Especially the one all the way to the right. I wouldn't mind getting into her magic underwear.

    Of course, the "blond" one isn't really blond (roots don't often lie), but that's okay …

  28. elviouslyqueer

    Well, I obviously wouldn't bone them. But hey, if they want me to come over, help do their hair and nails, fix some lovely Abuelita hot cocoa, and watch some shitty Judd Apatow movies, I suppose I could pry myself away from my hubs.

  29. Steverino247

    I'd fantasize about it, but I'm no Newt.

    However, my two sons (in the low 30's) are single, ladies. If you need some heroic jizz for them eggs…

  30. UnholyMoses

    But I'm not! *

    Well, not officially — my dad's side of the family all are, but he pretty much renounced it.

    Guess that's the side effect of marrying an Irish Catholic (well, other than the rampant alcoholism and quick-fire tempers).

    (* I'm also absurdly happily married to the most amazing woman EVAH! I mean, really — how many wives implore their hubbies to play video games and/or are stoked to watch football so they can learn more about it? Not sure what I did to deserve that woman, but … damn, I'm glad I did it.)

  31. SorosBot

    The shorn genitalia also mean that your partner, whatever your respective genders, doesn't have to worry about getting hair stuck in teeth.

  32. real_dc_native

    But who will fill the vacuum (already) left by the Democrats as they make that big step to the right?
