So, I went back and rewatched the debate on my DVR and caught something that I managed to miss completely the first time. Did anyone else catch Huntsman's completely awkward Kurt Cobain reference? He said something along the lines of: "In Gov. Romney's book 'No Apology', I don't know if that was written by Kurt Cobain or not.....". Word of advice: If you're trying to avoid looking like a square, referencing a band who sold millions of records 20 years ago is a poor way to go about it.
Also, I hadn't given it much thought, but doesn't Cain's "9-9-9 plan" seem oddly reminiscent of Dominos "5-5-5 deal"?
yeah, we caught it. I posted "All Apologies" in the debate thread at the time. There's nothing wrong with referencing a song, or any item of popular culture. But "No Apology" is a book by Mitt Romney, not a song by Nirvana. He confused the titles. That's probably why you missed it last night.
And yes, the Godfather's plan sounding like the Dominos deal was remarked on as well.
Last night I read an article that gave the candidates Nirvana theme songs:
Perry: “Territorial Pissings”
Romney: “The Man Who Sold the World”
Bachmann: “About a Girl”
Huntsman: “All Apologies”
Ron Paul: “You Know You’re Right” and/or “Come As You Are”
Cain: "Big Cheese"
Gingrich: “Big Long Now”
Santorum: “Jesus (Doesn't Want Me for a Sunbeam)”
Yes, two of those are covers, but still.
