Tim Pawlenty calls Barack Obama a doofus.

It’s amusing how casually this was tossed outTim Pawlenty, in an ABC interview – and in the process of restraining himself from rolling his eyes at Christine Amanpour’s bipartisan* fetish:

I think that any doofus can go to Washington, DC and maintain the status quo or incrementally change things…


‘Doofus’ would mean someone who was relatively low-performing.

It’s also amusing that there’s a thoroughly cross-spectrum consensus out there that Pawlenty was specifically calling President Obama a doofus, there. Then again, the average Lefty blogger would – public protestations to the contrary – privately admit (after three or four drinks*, and a quick check for uncontrolled recording equipment) that to call the President ‘relatively low-performing’ would be an example of ‘Minnesota Nice‘…

Full video after the fold.  Including a definite smack at the President over school choice.

Grayson’s being goofy again, in a Lovecraftian sort of way.

And if you take a look at his Necronomicon*, you’ll see that people are already treating it with all the respect that such a grandstanding act deserves.

Needless to say, I’ve already gotten the screen shot. Silly man.

*Somebody should have told him what “book of the names of the dead” means in Latin. And note that I’m not assuming that he meant this all along; Grayson’s not that imaginative.

Three Congressional Seats of interest.

Just a quick survey:

  1. CA-10 (D+11): David Harmer isn’t quitting this particular special election, and he’s having a bit of fun with the… well, I don’t know what John Garamandi was trying to do here:

    …but I hope that he does it again. A lot.
  2. FL-08 (R+2): Alan Grayson opened his mouth again; apparently he’s under the impression that there are no such things as recording devices.  Or that his constituents like being lied to, in a stupid fashion.

    The challenger for this seat is still up in the air (a lot of people want the shot), but the NRCC is happy to spotlight it anyway.  Nominee donation fund here.
  3. VA-05 (R+5): We have a candidate to go up against Tom Perriello!  Virginia state senator Robert Hurt. Perriello is – like Grayson, and oh, about sixty other or Democratic legislators – just a bit too liberal for his seat, and the GOP intends to bring that up. A lot.

So, as you can see: the machine is functional.
