I continue to be amazed that the Wisconsin GOP brought to its convention last weekend as the keynoter Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
Not surprisingly, he won the convention's 2012 presidential nomination straw poll.
So this is the guy? Does the GOP have collective memory loss?
Pawlenty was Minnesota Governor when the I-35W bridge collapsed; Not just that it happened on his watch, but media noted that Pawlenty had earlier twice vetoed tax increases to pay for state transportation needs.
How on earth could Pawlenty campaign with footage of the collapsed bridge and stories about motorists' deaths popping up in coverage, and opponents' TV spots?
Sounds like a campaign bridge to nowhere.
