Is this an ad for a book, or a summer movie trailer?

A trailer for a book? Even Harry Potter publishers never thought of something so tacky.

And no matter how many flags and fighter jets they put in, hearing Pawlenty's soporific voice is enough to put to sleep even the biggest politics junkie.

It's impressive, but I don't think enough people care about Pawlenty for it to be a best seller.

Neither, its an ad for a campaign.

That's actually a pretty cool advertisement. It's for president, of course. Reminds me a bit of the "Man in the Arena" juxtaposition McCain made in 2008.

I was just waiting to see: "Tim Pawlenty as Batman."

I must say, though, that as corny as it was, it is great to see Pawlenty show some enthusiasm.

Corny or not, the advertisement has been a success for him, IMO. Look at the number of views other videos with him have. Now look at the 68K views this has only one day in. It's definitely got his name out there.

Sorry, Tim. You're still just a really boring white guy from Minnesota.

Aaron is pissed:

She was like "How did you get my number?  I don't handle this issue.  You have to call the South Bryant Campus for that.  I'll transfer you, but I don't handle it."  She said it in a slightly condescending tone.  I didn't tell her that Grumps gave me the number.  I just told her I looked it up.

It's nice to see King Timmy coming out with new advertisements for himself.  Too bad nobody really likes him.

Give him a year or so in the presidency... he'll have that budget balanced... cuts to the sick and poor and plenty of accounting shifts, shifty borrowing, one time fixes, and a whole plethora of other gimmicks that leave us in worse financial shape... and economic and social shape than ever before when he leaves!

Ok, we know you have a personal gripe with the guy but we really didn't need the campaign advertisement.

And if you want to editorialize, please don't be too insanely biased to the point where you make stuff up. "Nobody really likes him?" What's that even based on?

Ok, so you just proved my point. Thank you. 42% approval would mean that quite a few people still like him. Though you should think twice when trying to be a smart ass and linking to a poll that has him at a 42% approval rating and a 66% disapproval rating. I'll give you a minute to ponder why that poll is worth a second look.

Anyway, if 42% is his lowest showing ever, he's a very lucky guy.

So they misquoted the poll (it has a link to the actual SUSA poll, check it out. The 66% disapproval is for the legislature.), beside the point. The point is he was not popular upon leaving office.

Ok, that's nice...except I wasn't arguing that he was popular. Snowguy said "no one really likes him." I countered that and you essentially backed up my point. Thank you. Please feel free to throw in your poll if I ever decide to say that he was popular upon leaving office.

He wasn't saying that no one likes him but that not one REALLY likes him which is true. He doesn't have the slavering devotion to him like so many idiots have to Sarah Palin for example.

That quote can be interpreted two ways but assuming he meant it that way, your poll is even more irrelevant. Anyway, the guy could end up being very well liked among Republicans. It's just that he's still rather unknown.

Well Phil, you seem to hate Rendell even more without giving us any reason why you consider him worse than Attila the Hun.

Actually, I don't "hate" him. He was being a particular asshat during his final months in office. I posted stories about it so that would discredit your claim that I was voicing my displeasure "without giving any reason." People on both sides noticed it and discussed it. That's hardly thinking someone is "worse than Attila the Hun."

You are seriously the worst hack here. We're talking about someone engaging in hyper-editorializing (to the point where he was making stuff up) where it really wasn't warranted. Sorry but Snowguy's gripe with Pawlenty for cutting aid has nothing to do with the release of this video or his chances for the nomination. But you decide to one up him and make me and Rendell an issue for more cheap hack points. Bravo.
