No Risk of Governor Molnau

It’s official: Governor Pawlenty will in fact not be John McCain’s running mate this fall.

Wouldn't it have been hilarious if John McCain died and this guy became president? No? Yeah, probably not. But still! [click here for hilarious reaction to this news]

I kind of wanted him to get the pick. This is not because I wanted him to be vice president (I don’t even think McCain will win in November, Palin or Pawlenty), but because I was proud that our governor was worthy of such rigorous national attention. Lil ol’ us in Minnesota! Our leader! How neat is that! I disagree with a lot of what the Governor says, but I’m happy for him that he was considered for such an important job. And if the rumors are true, I’m a little pissed that he was used as a red herring. That’s just not nice you guys.

What about you? Did you want to see TPaw on the ballot this November? Or could you not stand even the slimmest chance of Governor Molnau?

    Love the link to the sad trombone.

    I was looking forward to seeing Pawlenty in the debates on a national stage to see how he did.

    But yeah, the slightest chance of Gov Molnau had me really feeling crazy.

    The idea of VP Pawlenty truly made my tummy hurt yesterday. I read an item yesterday (and now I can’t remember where) about what the implications of backfilling his position are — beyond Carol Molnau, as if that’s not bad enouggh — and that wasn’t too pleasing.

    He cut that mullet off for nothing.
