Tim Pawlenty's website is... coming soon?

Web browsers seeking the hottest T-Paw news from the official source reached a cryptic message yesterday. Rather than being greeted by the smiling mug of Minnesota's former governor, they received the following cryptic message: "Please come back later." Holy Mittens, could it be a sign of big announcements to come?

Pawlenty offered no public explanation about what's up with his website, but speculation he'll end up as Romney's VP choice continues to mount. For one, it appears T-Paw will be getting a lot of face-time this Sunday on the national political talk shows.

From Associated Press political reporter Brian Bakst:Tomorrow, Pawlenty is scheduled to attend a New Hampshire Republican Party ice cream social (a $20 ice cream social, really?)... and some think he'll arrive in Manchester already coronated as Romney's choice.

Mitt is set to embark on an 11-state bus tour today, to conclude Sunday in Florida. Might he announce his VP pick before hitting the road? A Race 4 2012 blog post published Wednesday thinks that's a strong possibility:

I happened across an interesting tidbit this afternoon while searching for Romney's public schedule on Friday (which, quite interestingly, still remains undisclosed).

... Up until now, the media coverage has been about a bus tour beginning August 11 in Virginia. If a Romney aide now confirms that the bus tour actually is beginning on Friday, shouldn't that be big news?

And if that aforementioned bus tour actually begins on Friday, but not a single event on Friday has been made public yet, shouldn't that pique some interest?

I report, you decide...
Also on Wednesday, a confident-sounding Pawlenty assured reporters they'll know the identity of Mitt's VP choice "soon enough." Could this all be a coincidence?

The suspense will indeed end soon, possibly today, but more likely after Mitt's road trip -- after all, from a talkability standpoint, it' makes sense to save the VP announcement until after the Olympics wrap up this Sunday and the news cycle is a bit slower.

But in any case, there's a strong possibility that whenever T-Paw's website is back up and running, it'll feature the smiling mug of the 2012 GOP vice presidential candidate.

One thing about Obama: His dark skin sends ding-dongs like "kenny1" into such knuckle-dragging trogdolytic frenzies that they drop all caution and don't bother to hide their bigotry anymore. 

 

Poor kenny1: Yet another person whose brain's been cooked by the business-bigot alliance known as the "Southern Strategy", where Big Business plays on the fears and bigotries of people like kenny1 in order to get tax cuts for the rich.  (Because as Lee Atwater pointed out way back in 1981, if you get bigots to think that government programs exist mainly to help non-whites and non-males, you can then get them to agree to cut the taxes that fund these programs -- and all without having to openly say the word "nigg--".

I love Obama.  He cares for us non-working class Welfare recipients.  I will vote for Obama because he has cut the requirements for applying for jobs while on Welfare.  That really helps me because I don't have time to look for a job.  I have 13 kids!!  And another one on the way!!  I really enjoy sleeping in late on weekdays.  I mean, who wants to get up at 6:30 am to catch the bus to go to some low paying job when I can just sleep in after a hard night of malt liquor and dope?  I fucking hate republicans because they expect us to work for a living!!  It is much easier to just get "free shit" from the Welfare office!!  What is this world coming too??  Vote Obama 2012!!  Free Shit and More Free Shit!!  (p.s. did you know you can get a free cell phone if you are on Welfare?  it is true!! This way you can call your "Gurl" at the Kluub who is "keepin it real" fo free!!).

 

Mo' Money!!

Mo Free Shit!!

 

Obama: Hope and Change.  Hope for more Free Shit and Extra Change for the bus ride back to the crib.

 @bianca101 Considering that you got a free scholarship to attend college based solely on your race, you really have no right to make an opinion on politics. Enjoy the "free shit" you got from Whitey, but keep your mouth shut about politics.  The only people who have a right to speak about politics are those who actually have to work for a living and did not get "entitlements" based on their race or lack thereof.  My tax dollars got you a good education (one that I cannot even afford for my son.....because he is "evil"....he is white), so please keep your mouth shut and enjoy for entitlement-based lifestyle.

 @kenny1 You really have issues with women don't you?   There is no better indicator of a man with a micropenis than a racist loser who insults every woman he can.  Your obsession with gay people and guns really makes a strong case in freakishly small penis and brain.   Please insult my looks in the reply to further prove my point.

 @kenny1  @bianca101 What on Earth are you talking about?  Have another drink, or another pull on the meth pipe, or whatever is making you babble your hallucinations.

 @kenny1  @bianca101 What the hell? Apparently the gloves are off and anonymous right wing cowards will be personally attacking non-con commenters from here on out.

 

Dear CP: you've half killed your comments with the new registration system. Leave psychotic hate speech like Kenny's up and you'll lose the rest of your commenters.

 

And Kenny? Fuck you and all your pals down at the bundt.

 @MicheleBachmann I won't insult your looks because, quite frankly, I don't even want to know what you look like.  But I can only imagine...............

 @mark.gisleson And mark, fuck you and your Buddy MichelleBachmann.  Half of the people quit commenting on here because of that fucking psychotic cunt-job.
