Charge Of The T-Paw Brigade!

Look out, Iowa! Tim Pawlenty is coming for your vote and he’s going to be relentless about it, as he made so clear today: “The first real test and real benchmark … is the Ames Straw Poll … and I think you’ll see our campaign make very good progress between kind of back-of-the-pack status to something closer to front-of-the-pack status.”

Did you miss that clarion call to supporters? Have more stirring words ever been spoken?

The great declarations of history: “Give me liberty or give me death!” “We shall fight on the beaches …” “I shall return!”

And now Tim Pawlenty: We shall “make very good progress between kind of back-of-the-pack status to something closer to front-of-the-pack status.”
