The Washington Post reported that Tim Pawlenty, in a desperate attempt to have people pay attention to him, asked a group of Iowa bloggers what their favorite Gaga song was. Then they asked him to name his. His response?
“Well you know, in terms of the beat, I like ‘Bad Romance,'” Pawlenty said. “I gotta say, even though she’s a little unusual, ‘Born this Way’ has some appeal. She’s actually very talented. Now if you go to the end of the HBO special, the Lady Gaga HBO special, and you watch her sing a cappella “Born This Way,” she can sing. She can definitely sing. She’s talented.”
Born this way? The LGBT anthem? What what? Lifted directly from Mr. Pawlenty’s website:
I firmly believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, as President Obama told us he believed in 2008. But now President Obama and his Justice Department would have us believe that traditional marriage laws are unconstitutional. I oppose the Justice Department’s political decision to reverse its policy defending the Defense of Marriage Act, a federal statute passed overwhelmingly by Congress and signed into law by President Clinton.
For the record, Michele Bachman signed an antigay marriage pledge today and Tim Pawlenty is considering it. A gay hater who likes Lady Gaga………? Tim Pawlenty is an enigma wrapped in a mystery. And still boring. And pretty hypocritical.
Fun fact: When you Google Tim Pawlenty and start typing in Tim, Tim McGraw shows up first. People are more interested in Tim McGraw than Tim Pawlenty and he hasn’t even released an album since 2009.
