Iowa Paper Cries Foul Over Pawlenty’s ‘Pantsing’ Edit

Via the Des Moines Register:

Then-House Speaker Steve Sviggum stood at the plate during Minnesota’s annual House-Senate softball game a decade ago when Tim Pawlenty, then a suburban legislator, sneaked up and yanked down his pants.

“There’s press all around, all these senators are all around, and I’m standing there with my softball pants around my knees,” said Sviggum, a close friend of Pawlenty. “Luckily I was wearing some shorts.”

Hmmm. This makes me wonder, what's the male equivalent of a "nip slip?"

    He was “ousting republicans” who overrode his veto of the 2008 transportation bill, which responded to the I-35 bridge collapse by spending money to fix things.

    Republicans are against spending money to fix things, you see.

    this man isn’t a has been he is a never was. he figures if you can’t make history rewrite it. sounds like the same as bachmann palin and santorum. the tea party candidates all have the same response to criticism . play victim

    Frankly, the pantsing story is the only thing I’ve heard about the guy that makes him sound like an OK human being.
