Taking a cue from Jon Huntsman's crack during Monday's debate, here are the Kurt Cobain titles that best describe the field
Last night, former Utah governor Jon Huntsman made a crack about Mitt Romney's 2010 book No Apology: The Case for American Greatness, suggesting it bore some resemblance to Nirvana's song "All Apologies."
"You've got Governor Romney, who called [Social Security] a fraud in his book 'No Apology.' I don't know if that was written by Kurt Cobain or not," he quipped.
That got us thinking: What other Nirvana songs go with what other Republican presidential candidates? Here are some ideas:
- Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney - with apologies to Huntsman, "All Apologies"
- Former Utah governor Jon Huntsman - with that love of Harleys, "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
- Former House speaker Newt Gingrich - not sure we need to explain this one: "Territorial Pissing"
- Rep. Ron Paul (Texas) - or this one: "Curmudgeon"
- Businessman Herman Cain - because it's what he does, "Come As You Are"
- Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.) - with her polling flat, "On a Plain"
- Former senator Rick Santorum (Pa.) - a true believer in the "Lake of Fire"
- Texas Gov. Rick Perry - mainly just for that hair: "Lounge Act"
And former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic pronounced on Twitter after the debate "OK - I'm now officially interested. #huntsman," adding: "I'll campaign for @JonHuntsman and if elected, he'll nominate me for Dept. Of Bass Tossers. I will go down in flames in Senate confirmation."
Which songs do you think go with which candidates? Leave your answers in the comments, below.
