Even after the failure of his poorly received Nirvana joke, Jon Huntsman continues undeterred in his quest to confound Republicans with early nineties teenage pop culture references. CBS News reports:


Chowing down with state Sen. Nancy Stiles over a big plate of seafood at the 401 Tavern in Hampton, Huntsman observed, "You know there was a great line in Wayne's World, the movie, something like, 'Not worthy, not worthy.' Hardly worthy of this kind of food."

Next week, Huntsman will claim that Republican voters are merely having a summer fling with Rick Perry, like the one between Dylan and Kelly in season 3 of Beverly Hills, 90210.
