When I think of Samuel L. Jackson, I think of "Pulp Fiction" and "Snakes on a Plane." But more and more, he's becoming my go-to guy for all things f-bombs.

Former GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman on MSNBC's "Morning Joe": "I failed, as my daughter tells me time and time again, so I'm not in a position to offer any kind of advice [to Romney]."
