Tweet of the Day

Yesterday morning, I wrote a post declaring that it was unfair and inaccurate to call Tim Pawlenty boring. A few hours later, he proved me right by sending out this tweet:

@BarackObama sorry to interrupt the European pub crawl, but what was your Medicare plan?Thu May 26 21:06:40 via Twitter for BlackBerry®

Awesome. I like the feisty side that Pawlenty has been showing lately.

For far too long, Republicans have indulged a tendency to be polite and not fight back, no matter how outrageous and malicious the Democrats' lies were. Just last week, the DCCC released a web ad with a Paul Ryan look-alike shoving an old lady in a wheelchair off a cliff. The insinuation was that Congressman Ryan's budget plan would end Medicare and kill senior citizens, perhaps echoing former (I love writing that) Congressman Alan Grayson's silly temper tantrum on the House floor that "Republicans want you to Die Quickly!"

So, yes, I definitely like this side of Tim Pawlenty.

You can follow him on Twitter at @timpawlenty.
