    I heard Jon Huntsman this morning on KSL's Sunday Edition. What Huntsman said should be trumpeted loudly and clearly all across the nation. He talked very frankly and honestly about how both parties have wandered into a wasteland of intellectual poverty and dishonesty.

    If you missed the interview this morning, try going to the KSL's website. Go to KSL's website. Down at the very bottom, you'll find a list of programs. Search for and click Sunday Edition and you'll be on your way.

    Please take the time to do it. It's well worth watching. And LISTENING to what Jon Huntsman has to say.
