Former Minnesota governor and GOP presidential contender Tim Pawlenty has been ever so proud of himself for coming up with a cunning slam on the assumed front-runner in the nomination race, former Massachusetts governor Mitch Romney, on the Sunday talk shows:
“Obamneycare” — priceless! He’s saying Mitch Romney is just like that socialist Kenyan Barack Obama! Ooooh, burn!
So naturally, the world at large expected Pawlenty to trot out the term at every opportunity, or at least mount a serious attack on Romney, at last night’s GOP debate. But then Pawlenty realized that Romney was standing right over there. And, like a small furry animal who senses a fox out hunting, he froze:
I love Romney’s expression during this exchange. He’s mentally picking his teeth with Pawlenty’s tiny, tiny bones. And Pawlenty? He just rolled over and exposed his belly to the Alpha Dog.
If these people stumble over each other, I can’t wait to see them dissolve into puddles of quivering goo when they’re actually confronted by Obama’s debating skills. Good luck in 2016, folks!
