Pawlenty drops out, was Stacy McCain to blame?

Well, that did not take long now did it? Stacy McCain, who has been in Iowa in recent days has the news, but did his fear and loathing cause Pawlenty to fade away? Or was it just Pawlenty’s lack of energy? Naw, I am blaming McCain!

I was sitting here at breakfast with Ladd Ehlinger just an hour ago when he said, “Pawlenty’s quitting!”

Tim Pawlenty told supporters on a conference call Sunday morning that he is ending his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination after a disappointing third-place finish at the Iowa straw poll.
Mr. Pawlenty thanked his supporters in an early-morning call, two participants said, but acknowledged that he had decided overnight that his candidacy could not proceed.

That was quick, wasn’t it? I landed in Des Moines on Aug. 3 and, eleven days later, Pawlenty quits the race. Some people will say this is merely a coincidence.

Perhaps it was the neo-Confederate sex panic.” Perhaps it was those rumors that Pawlenty was behind those vicious smears against Michelle Bachmann. And, of course, perhaps the sudden implosion of the T-Paw candidacy had nothing to do with anything I did.

No doubt that the dust up with Bachman hurt Pawlenty, and I will always be suspicious of that “infamous blogger” who likes to yell “Roll Tide”, but McCain points out to the most likely culprit behind Pawlenty’s departure. The David Brooks curse!

And, before you dismiss the legitimacy of the Brooks Curse, pay attention to who else Brooks dawned over in that clip. Huntsman, who got fewer votes in the straw poll than the local crossing guard and Mitt. Sure Mitt is the national front-runner, for now, but with Bachman winning the straw poll and Perry getting in the race……….. HMMMMMMMMMMMM

  1. Ah – no one cares that Pawlenty dropped out. He wasn’t a serious contender anyway… Everyone likes him but no one was voting for him.

  2. Tim Pawlenty reminds me of one of the guys who came to my door a week ago and tried to give me a copy of the Watchtower.
