Looking for that coveted Colbert bump to boost his current two percent standings in the Republican field, Gov. Jon Huntsman went on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central). There, he fielded questions about Mormonism being referred to as a cult -- he equated it to Catholocism being called a cult when JFK was running -- and why he doesn't just run as a Democrat.
When Stephen Colbert asked him to say the most "non-scary thing" Huntsman could think of in Mandaran -- he's fluent in the language -- he did. But Colbert still responded with, "Terrifying."
When he asked what Huntsman had said, he replied, "I just said I think that you oughta consider being my running mate for vice president." That is terrifying. Imagine, a fictional character one heartbeat away from the presidency.
