On Second Thought, Yes--Give Up Your Day Job Too!

MN Governor Tim Pawlenty, in addition to thinking he's a viable candidate for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, also thinks he's a comedian:

The Minnesota Governor called Cash for Clunkers "misguided" and "ludicrous" before saying, "There's a joke out now that says the main value of the Cash for Clunkers program may be that we'll get a lot of cars with Obama stickers off the road." The implication of that "joke" seems to be that it's poor Obama supporters who own old clunkers that were the beneficiaries of this government program.

Coming after Pawlenty's slash-and-burn tactics with the state budget, this latest bon mot again reveals T-Paw's essential indifference to the poor, as well as his ignorance to the fact that plenty of Beamers, Lexuses, and Benzs around here had Obama stickers on them last fall (and still do). I guess trying so hard to be the wingnut candidate of choice while still pretending to give a shit about people has him spindizzy.

Hey Tim, find another line of work, willya? Preferably one that doesn't give you any impact on other people.
