Pawlenty announces the next place he won't bag a deer this year
Gov. Tim Pawlenty made the dreams come true of all deer in Thief River Falls today when he announced he will be there for this year's deer hunting opener on Nov. 6.
So why would the deer be so happy?
Pawlenty can't hunt, especially on the one day of the year he is supposed to prove he's a real huntin' Minnesotan .
The last time Pawlenty bagged a deer on opening day was back in 2004 when he caught a small four-point buck. Can we even call Pawlenty a man anymore? Probably not.
But actually being successful on the hunting trip isn't the real point, Pawlenty insists. It's all about promoting the sport. That's what they all say when they don't have skills to call home about.
Good luck this year, T-Paw. If you don't score a buck this year, your chances at the Oval Office are probably out the window.
