Jon Huntsman: Going after the Internet vote?

Jon Huntsman’s daughters, who last month donned mustaches to spoof Herman Cain’s now-infamous smoking ad, have a new video out to promote their father’s presidential bid, set to the tune of the song “SexyBack.” Their rewritten, sassy lyrics include calling the rest of the Republican field a “circus act,” making fun of Herman Cain’s pizza business and 9-9-9 plan, and a clip in which Mitt Romney calls for abortion to be “safe and legal.” (Watch the video below.)
