Andrew Sullivan quotes Jon Huntsman, back in September, loving all over Captain Beefheart and specifically referring to Trout Mask Replica. Wow. That has to be the most non-mainstream musical identification (cf. party identification) ever given by a U.S. presidential candidate. And a Republican to boot.
