Pawlenty can't piss off Limbaugh, defends him on Maddow
Gov. Tim Pawlenty made yet another appearance on Rachel Maddow's MSNBC show yesterday. What's he doing this time? Trying not to piss off Rush Limbaugh. They are in a Republican orgy after all, right?
Maddow pressed Pawlenty hard on Limbaugh's recent statement in which he said he hopes President Obama fails. Pawlenty did his Republican duty of defending Limbaugh, but not jumping on his bandwagon.
Do Republicans fear the wrath of Limbaugh? It appears they are all walking lightly around him: not pissing him off or rallying in his favor.
Watch the video below.
Pawlenty's interview starts at 4:15.
