First Newt Gingrich, now T-Paw: the glitter rainbow is everywhere.
Our former governor and current GOP presidential contender was signing books in San Francisco today at a conference on health care. That's when a pair of women from feminist protest group Code Pink accosted T-Paw and attempted to dump pink glitter and confetti on him.
"Tim Pawlenty, where is your courage to stand?" the protesters said. "Stand for reproductive rights! Stand for gay rights!'"
Pawlenty is the second GOP presidential candidate to feel the glitter love. Last month in Minnesota, local left-wing protester Robert Erickson dumped glitter on Newt Gingrich, urging him to "Feel the rainbow!" and "Stop the hate!"
In this glitter dump, Pawlenty apparently did not get as much glitter on him, according to Politico, and the protesters were quickly whisked away.
