Pawlenty guts Minnesota to stoke his own ambitions.

Pawlenty's presidential ambitions are affecting his state. He's proposed a drastic budget sure to generate a fight which will only serve to publicize his new found budgetary conservatism to a national audience.

My money says that he ends up on FoxNews talking about a Minnesota budget dispute. (...because the entire nation holds its breath over Minnesota's financial state...)

And, While we're talking about Pawlenty's outsized ambitions, I should probably mention his WaPo editorial laying out his healthcare solution.


  • We are reaching a critical point of political cynicism. Clearly the Republicans every move is calculated solely for political gain. This is demonstrably true by their voting against their own proposals merely to make the Dems and Obama look ineffective.

    As is often the case, people project their own guilt on to others. So now anytime Obama offers a proposal, the Repubs call it a ploy. Which, of course, get parroted by the traditional media.

    We have reached a point of total political failure.

  • Yes.

    (I wish I had more to add, but, yes.)
