Ran up the Lincoln Memorial steps w/ my morning jog, threw some Rocky jabs at the top. Green paint lady's lucky I wasn't there when she was.-- Tim Pawlenty (@TimPawlenty) August 12, 2013

I'm pretty sure @TimPawlenty would have gotten his ass kicked, but regardless...way to make a joke about a man hitting a woman...asshole!-- Erik Veenhuis (@erikveenhuis) August 12, 2013
In any event, between this and his job working as a lobbyist for some of America's biggest banks, Pawlenty can't be too concerned about his approval rating with poor voters these days.
