Top Five ways Tim Pawlenty is just like Donald Trump

Pawlenty and Trump: Not so different.
Tim Pawlenty has struggled to get attention for his presidential run with action movie promos and appearances with Jon Stewart.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump merely pretends to run and is the talk of CNN. T-Paw just can't win!

Perhaps the solution is for The Tim to point out all the ways that he's just like The Donald.

Here's five to get him started.

Both have really bitchin' hairdos.

The case of the disappearing mullet.
Sure, to look at Tim Pawlenty now, you'd think he selected his haircut from the Boring White Guy Collection, but it wasn't always so.

Back when he was just the humble governor of Minnesota, T-Paw sported a spectacular salad. Equally at home at the Republican National Convention or a Monster Truck Rally, Pawlenty's mullet was the envy of the State of Hockey.

Then he decided to run for president. T-Paw hacked off the mud flaps, and like Samson, instantly became much less interesting.

Now that Trump's helmet hair is all over CNN, Pawlenty might consider bringing back the Party in the Back. But this time, we'd suggest combing it forward into bangs.

Pawlenty and Trump are totally down with God.

If God doesn't make Trump prez, He's fired!
Tim Pawlenty grew up Catholic in South St. Paul and was born again as a Baptist, but here in Minnesota he didn't make a big deal out of it. An anti-abortion vote here, an anti-gay marriage vote there, yet the man was hardly a bible-thumper. That's all changed now that he's running for president and telling the religious right he's one of them.

Trump, meanwhile, grew up Presbyterian in New York City, began worshiping piles of cash in college, and now that he's sort-of running for president, he thinks that "religion is a wonderful thing. I think my religion is a wonderful religion" -- no doubt because it's his religion. People shower him with bibles, he says. And he goes to church regularly--every Christmas, every Easter, and, well, "I'll go when I can."

Judging by the polls, Republicans prefer The Donald's brand of worship.
