Video: Anti-Gay Former MN Gov Pawlenty Launches Presidential Run


Anti-gay former Minnesota GOP governor Tim Pawlenty has launched his presidential run with a new video.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

And Zack Ford at Think Progress publishes a helpful list, reminding us that Pawlenty opposes same-sex unions, wants to reinstate 'DADT' and rescind funding for its implementation, regrets his vote for an LGBT non-discrimination bill, doesn't support end-of-life rights for same-sex couples, vetoed an anti-bullying bill, and opposed a large number of additional benefits for LGBT people.

  2. So he's a total asshat. I'm surprised he's not the governor of Kansas. Oh wait... Brownshirt is the probably the only politician that could totally outasshat him.

  6. I think Pawlenty needs to be santorumed. What would a good definition of 'pawlenty' be?

  7. This man is totally disgusting. I guess he thinks he will appeal to his base. I think I hate him more than SP (but not RS). Good thing his personality is akin to a wet blanket.

  10. This is a very early announcement. In the hierarchy of the GOP the nomination would next fall to Mitt Romney. They like to go in order.

  11. Should Pawlenty get the nomination, Obama would crush him in his own state. Minnesota does not like Pawlenty.

  12. Tim Pawlenty normally has a pretty standard Minnesotan accent. But when trying to appeal to a more southern crowd, he adopts a pretty thick drawl. What a frikkin phony.
