After his co-stater, a female, trounces him in the straw poll, Pawlenty drops out.

Aw.

I'm not sure anyone really cares.

Cspan call in show is good this morning. Someone (Sanders?) was saying that Obama wanting to give away the store on Social Security is a Republican position! Yes, agreed the Republican guest.

Exactly.

"...a female..."

Wow

Curious George said...

and "why?"

Great! He was by far the biggest threat to President Obama in a general election. Now only the kooks are left.

I liked Pawlenty. And I feel strongly we need a President with executive experience.
I wasn't at all impressed with TPaw's campaign style.

Onward

Correction-Huntsman is not a kook, but he could never win the nomination.

The left has gone wild with Bachmann's hotdog eating picture.

"The hypocritical bitch sucks cock!" they're all screaming.

Who told them that evangelical women don't like sex? That's certainly not my experience. (Somewhere, deep in the reptilian mind of the leftist lurks the idea that you must endorse abortion if you really want to get it on.)

The other jab is at her husband for offering therapy to gays who want to become hetero. Why is this such a horrendous offense?

He wouldn't have a practice if the gays didn't want the therapy. And, my daughters both attended college during the 90s, when women's studies departments relentlessly recruited the hetero girls for lesbianism.

Finally, the lefties are besides themselves over an evangelical woman being involved in politics. Only feminist leftist women are supposed to do that.

Where do lefties get these ideas? It's like they belong to a junior high school clique.

Shouting Thomas, you have a rich fantasy life. Dream on.

In reality, no one's paying as much attention as you give them credit for.

Now it is down to Jesus freaks, southern hicks and a Mormon. My fear was some serious Midwestern governor would run against President Obama. I hope Palin runs.

She's female all right. It drives the liberals nuts.

Insufficiently Sensitive said...

A good man, with a questionable support organization. It will be a huge relief for his incessant robo-calls for funds, 5 or 6 daily, to go quiet.

"The hypocritical bitch sucks cock!"

What's hypocritical about cock-sucking?

And why are you talking about Bachmann eating a hot dog in 2 separate posts.

Shouting Thomas said...

What's hypocritical about cock-sucking?

I asked my lefty friends on FB the same thing.

Apparently, evangelicals are obliged to loath cock sucking.

And why are you talking about Bachmann eating a hot dog in 2 separate posts.

Both posts seemed relevant. And the hot dog eating is an obsessive discussion on FB today. Seems, to the lefties, to sum up everything that is awful about Bachmann.

T-Paw lost out when he wouldn't defend his ObamaneyCare line.

PS Looks like the trolls are coming back. Considering how bad the summer's been for Little Zero and the Demos generally, I'm surprised they didn't wait till Labor Day.

It's like obscenity, you know it when you see it. Except this is the essential connection a politician has to make with the audience. Call it excitement, call it whatever you want, he ain't got it.

Paul said...

You know.. Perry/Bachmann sounds like a good ticket.

And that makes 'Jimmy C.' Obama/'Buffoon' Biden look like a looser team.

I hear Ralph Nader might run against Obama. Now ain't that funny.

Pawlenty is one of those narcissistic phonies who think they can simply show up and the electorate will be so dazzled by their "obvious" brilliance, they will win.

PatCA said...

Aw, Paw!

I felt bad for Pawlenty when I watched the debates.He was obviously an effective governor of a significant state but he just didn't translate well on the national stage. His body language was needy. He looked like he had gone to leadership hand gesture school...you know, the closed fist, finger pointing, etc. It looked too rehearsed.

Agreed. That was weak.

... simply show up and the electorate will be so dazzled by their "obvious" brilliance, they will win.

Just like Obama?

traditionalguy said...

Let's see. The weak and obsequious man lost to the steel spined warrior woman.

It's a replay of Michelle Bachmann Tomb Raider, and no Arnold Schwartzneggers from Texas need apply either.

Methadras said...

I had hopes for Pawlenty, but he was milquetoast.

Roux said...

No one really cares but I don't think his heart was ever in it.

mariner said...

I can see you're crying for him.

So am I.

Fred4Pres said...

I am enjoying this road trip for the delays in time. Pawlenty is a wuss. I drive harder.

Revenant said...

I thought he was one of the better candidates. Interesting.

johnvert said...

Pawlenty maxed out his political career as a governor of a flaky state. He had no chance of winning the presidency.
