So Much For Jon Huntsman, "Moderate"

After gaining tons of positive press for comments on global warming and evolution, yesterday Jon Huntsman completely threw his credibility out of the window by announcing that he was open to being the vice presidential choice of Michele Bachmann.
CNN’s Piers Morgan asked the former Utah governor “If Michele Bachmann continued to get real traction, and she came to you and said: Look, you’re the other part of the party. Together we can create sweet music. Could you countenance such an idea?” Huntsman replied, “You know, if you love this country, you serve this country. Every time I've been asked to serve over different administrations— from Reagan, to the two Bushes, to President Obama — I have the same answer, and that is if you love this country, you serve her.” “And so if you’re in a position to better the country, to bring whatever background you have to bear, whatever experiences to use in fine-tuning our future, I’ll be the first person to sign up, absolutely,” said Huntsman, who most recently served as U.S. ambassador to China.
So much for the "moderate hero of the GOP."
