Somebody’s Got it Wrong

If you don’t live in Minnesota, you’re excused for not knowing that our Governor, Tim Pawlenty, is not standing for re-election, and is instead running for President.

His platform: he cleaned up the mess at the (state) Capitol, imposed fiscal discipline, and united both parties — and can do the same for the country.

So, who just won the Minneapolis precinct caucuses to replace Pawlenty?

Minneapolis Mayor RT Rybak.

His message?

The state needs someone who . . . wait for it . . . “can clean up the mess at the Capitol, impose fiscal discipline, and unite both parties” (I just saw Rybak interviewed on the local public TV station, and he uttered that line verbatim).

Must be a popular slogan!

(For the record, I haven’t endorsed a candidate for either President or Governor.)
