Keith Ellison accuses Tim Pawlenty of drinking "the Kool-Aid"

Keith Ellison: T-Paw's a phoney.
Who is Tim Pawlenty? Recent polls suggest that few Republicans know or care when it comes to the 2012 presidential race. And a lot of Minnesotans are scratching their heads as he moves further and further to the right to court tea partiers.

Now comes Rep. Keith Ellison, co-chair of the House Progressive Caucus, to slam the former governor as a tool of billionaire GOP donors who has left his blue-collar St. Paul roots far in the rear-view mirror.

He has drank the Kool-Aid. And he's going to get up there on the course of this presidential campaign and tell you all about how his father was a truck driver in South St. Paul. Well you know what, that was a long time ago. And he has no connection to that anymore. And I would only imagine what he would do to the truck drivers of South St. Paul today.

T-Paw's a plugger, though. He'll be in Iowa today with Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and other assorted Republicans at an Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition in Waukee.

"And I would only imagine what he would do to the truck drivers of South St. Paul today."Nice speculative fear mongering Keith!Right, I'm sure he would cut the heads off those infidels in the name of Allah.

Lets put a "Keith statement" like this in Michele Bachmann's mouth. Would there be "good press" or "bad press" coming from Citypages on a "speculative", "fear mongering" statement like that? Does the indoctrination hurt people?


Nice Islamophobia, If you don't believe Pawlenty hasn't already sold out, I don't know what to tell you. Evidence: 35W Bridge Collapse, Record Budget deficit and now there are Anti Depressants in our water. You should drop your prejudice and look at a little thing called documented facts.


A little reminder once again, folks: Do not feed the trolls, it only makes them grow big and strong.
