Tim Pawlenty makes pub crawl joke even though his staffers have DWI arrests

One of these guys is running for president, and the other three are drunk drivers who are trying to help him.
Tim Pawlenty is so desperate to be interesting he's turning his campaign into a deleted scene from Beer League.

Today, T-Paw flailed at Obama on Twitter, making an unfunny joke about Barack being on a European pub crawl.

The irony is that Pawlenty's campaign staff is all-too-familiar with pubs--and driving home afterwards. A Washington correspondent for Slate and MSNBC took notice of T-Paw's dopey joke and tweeted a link to our expose of Nick Ayers' DWI arrest.

Which means T-Paw's tweet only served to revive a scandal in his own ranks that lay dormant.

Who's laughing now?

Here's Timmy's unwise tweet:

@BarackObama sorry to interrupt the European pub crawl, but what was your Medicare plan?less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply


Which brought this sharp retort from Washington D.C. political reporter Dave Weigel:

Legitimately surprised to see TPaw campaign joke about a pub crawl. Why? http://bit.ly/kUB38Eless than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply


The link takes you to the dash cam footage of Pawlenty campaign chief Nick Ayers failing his DWI test. And since T-Paw brought it up and we have the footage handy ...


Did Nick Ayers write that brilliant bon mot that T-Paw tweeted? And was he sober when he came up with it?

Gov. Gutshot just copies conservative talk radio blather. He can't even come up with his own stupid attempts at insults.

Is it possible to pass a field sobriety test?

 This type of inconsequential reporting makes me yearn for the days of typewriters and limited supplies. Back then, no one would have wasted ink and paper on this pathetic excuse for a muckraking attempt.
