Team Pawlenty fires shot at "pain in the ass" Bachmann

The joking around is over.
Up until now, Minnesota's two presidential wannabes, Tim Pawlenty and Michele Bachmann, have been pretty firm adherents to Ronald Reagan's 11th Commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican.

But it sounds like the gloves may be coming off.

In a long Time profile of Pawlenty, and his tightrope walk trying to please teabaggers and mainstream Republicans alike, his friend and former chief of staff called Bachmann "a pain the ass."

The headline's wrong. It should read, "No more Mr. Nice Guy."
Pawlenty may be spooked in part by a fellow Minnesotan: Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, whose fiery brand of conservatism could steal the show in Iowa, where Pawlenty needs a strong showing to catapult him into subsequent primary states. "Bachmann's going to be a pain in the ass in Iowa," says Pawlenty's friend and former chief of staff Charlie Weaver.

Let the food fight begin.

"a pain in* the ass " Unless the chief of staff had a mouthful of food when he said that or something...

 I actually dislike both Bachmann and Pawlenty, two natives of the upper Middle West where I hail from.   Too much white bread from Pawlenty, who along with Huntsman is going to be the clown the lamestream media picks for the Republicans, too many of whom so want to be liked by their opponents.   

To me, the Demonrats are insufferable and a danger to the national interest.

      I bet you fantasize about her and Palin having a naked tickle fight.  Am I right?  I thought so.

 Pawlenty reminds me of GABE on the TV show "the Office".

 "Demonrats" that's clever. You think that one up by yourself?

 Paul Ryan makes me think of GABE - I don't really think of T-Paw at all.
