Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman received an unlikely endorsement from liberal documentary film maker Michael Moore Monday night, reports the Daily Caller
“There’s only one that has sanity operating inside of him and that’s Jon Huntsman. When they asked ‘who here believes in science?’ He’s like, the only one to raise his hand! . . . Here he was, a Mormon and the governor of Utah, and he got a civil union law passed that’s not passed in many states that are not Utah,” Moore said on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight.
Moore went on to explain why he believes the Republicans are skeptical of Huntsman as a candidate.
“Because he’s smart, and he actually might win. You see, if the Republican Party, and if the tea party was smart, they would run somebody who would not only get the Republican vote, but a good chunk of the independents and maybe even some of the Democrats, but they’re not,” Moore said. “They are on, as I said the other day on some other show, on the ‘Tea-tanic.’”
