Irony of the Huntsman Sr. line on Romney and taxes? Jon Huntsman didn't release taxes/wasn't up front about putting own money into race—

Jon Huntsman Sr. muttered something today about Romney and his taxes and the press breathlessly reported it, natch.
Sigh. Earlier, the Left had been desperately trying to spin the senior Huntsman as Harry Reid’s Romney tax “source.“
So the new lefty theory is Jon Huntsman Sr. knows more about Mitt Romney's tax returns than the Internal Revenue Service. Okay then.—

But, wait! Apparently, Jon Huntsman Sr. is not the super secret, cousin of some guy’s girlfriend, source.
Non-sycophants everywhere say, “who cares”?
Things are going to be very awkward at the Mormon Politician Picnic this year.—

Then came the Jon Huntsman Jr. rumors. And this time, they didn’t entail Mandarin nor lame jokes about grunge bands, as Huntsman is wont to make.
This works out great for us. We can finally disown Huntsman and then can run ads with what he said about Obama during the primaries.—

Huntsman’s daughters swiftly nip the rumors in the bud.
Twitter rumors debunked! Of course, that doesn’t stop the Huntsman snarking. He’s not a favorite of conservatives, for good reasons.
