Red State has a few posts to let you know a few things about the Governor of Minnesota, touted by some as the VP ick that John McCain will make.
Erick Erickson has "Get To Know Tim Pawlenty"
Ben Domenech has "10 Quick Thoughts on Tim Pawlenty as Veep Nominee"
Erick Erickson earlier posted "McCain's Vice President: Tim Pawlenty" opening with:
I'm confident enough to put this up now, but willing to be wrong.
Right now though, every sign, signal, and background chatter indicates John McCain will pick Tim Pawlenty, Minnesota's governor, as his running mate.
Just so you know the Obamamaniacs are not sitting quietly, thinking peaceful, hopechangey thoughts, Kim Priestap has noted at Wizbang, "Obama Camp Ready for Pawlenty", and says,
If tomorrow John McCain announces that Rick Pawlenty will be his vice president, the Obama camp is prepared to smear him with the Minnesota bridge collapse even though it was a design flaw that led to the disaster. That, however, won't stop the O campaign from trying:
"The Obama campaign signaled a willingness on Thursday to say that the 2007 Minneapolis bridge collapse raised management questions for Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) while also maintaining that the populist argument it is building against John McCain will continue even if the presumptive Republican nominee taps the son of a truck driver as his running mate."
Ahh, the New Politics of the Obamessiah. Hope, Change, and Unity in lying and smearing any who oppose The One.
Now, I don't know who McCain is choosing, though I was hoping for Sarah Palin. But I did have some time this afternoon to waste, so I Paint Shop Pro-ed this weird banner, just in case! Click for an embiggened image.
Hey! Don't blame me! I'm still sick! Nyeaaah!
'Sides, I still kinda like it. Heheheee!
