Every time I think about him, I throw up a little.

As if that's some sort of compliment. The GOP field is a parade of debris.

is not going to do the boy a bit of good, no new taxes or not. His 3% rating in New Hampshire probably isn't a very good start, either.

...when it comes to getting the work done that he's paid for. Rather than staying in the state and doing his job as governor, he's constantly on the road, shilling like a partisan hack, or trotting off to Iraq for some high profile photo ops.

McCain could strangle him with two arms tied behind his back.

It drives my nuts when these clowns fly around the country and the world and then have the nerve to say, "I haven't made a decision whether I'm even going to run or not." Just confess already!!!

Just like in industry, Pawlenty is as good a poison pill as there is. Elect this shyster, who single handedly destroyed Minnesota's budget, and we won't have to worry about China or India taking over our country. It will be loaded with backstabbing, middle aged white men who never got their fingernails dirty. They will pay consultants billions in taxpayer money, and Target contributions to build their image,and leave such a bankrupt country that even the French, and Iraqi's, and Taliban and every other Bush constructed enemy won't dare invest in us. But Pawlenty and Bachmann will be sitting with their millions on beach front property next to Rush, doing drugs.
