CONCORD, N.H. -- At a friendly, very un-Santorum-esque Q&A at the College Convention, a student got another bite at the Occupy apple. Glenn Kaplan couldn't get Huntsman on the record about whether corporations were legally people. The student did.
"Of course corporations are not people," joked Huntman. "Who would say such an outlandish thing!"
The "who" is Mitt Romney, who told hecklers at the Iowa State Fair that "corporations are people,"* losing no Republican support but becoming even more of a punchline for a certain sort of Democrat.
*Full quote: "Corporations ARE people, my friend!"
