The Pawlenty Macarena; one step forward…
It’s been a wash week at best for Governor Tim Pawlenty. He bolstered his electoral credentials by asking for tax cuts in his State of the State address. State policy smart. But this was undercut by his announcement that he’s going to be the national co-chair of John McCain's campaign for President. National electorally tone-deaf.
McCain’s ‘Straight Talk Express’ jumped the tracks (and the shark) long ago. By hopping on board post-derailment, Pawlenty is acting like he’s on the same path.
