    …aaaaaaaand cue the gay Republicans who refuse to be “defined by their sexuality” extolling their support for Pawlenty, in 5…4…3…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.

    Quick question for anyone from MN, What did his Dad do for a living? “… Up close I saw the challenge…”

  4. Stephen Murray says

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

  5. Jim says

    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.

    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.

  7. NY2.0 says

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

  8. Tribute says

    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.
