Pawlenty won't let go of "man crush" joke, now calling it "bromance"
Gov. Tim Pawlenty continued telling and retelling his joke about MSNBC host Chris Matthew's "man crush" on President Obama. Tell us something we didn't know. Wasn't exactly clever or funny the first time and it's definitely not getting any funnier.
Now he's calling it a "bromance." How MTV-chic.
It's unfortunate that Pawlenty has the opportunity to stand above the rest in hopes that every other potential Republican candidate crumbles underneath him. But he's starting to take the low-brow path by getting into cable TV political name calling.
Maybe he should take some pointers from Minnesota's very own politician/comedian Sen. Amy Klobuchar. She actually had people rolling.
Check out his bromance quote in the video below.
