T-Paw connects with Eminem

Tim Pawlenty spoke to a group of Republican college students last night, and used Marshall Mathers to bridge the generational divide.

Referring to NBC's recent "Inside the White House" segment:

"I haven't seen something that staged since that half-naked Austrian fell onto the face of Eminem at the MTV music awards."

Eminem was mad. And so, just like Eminem getting dumped on, we've got to kind of regroup. We've got to continue to fight. And we've got some things worth fighting for."

Like Satan, the "half-naked Austrian" in question goes by many names: Ali G, Borat, Bruno, and the more conventional Sacha Noam Baron Cohen.

And that's kind of like Tim Pawlenty, who goes by the names Tim Pawlenty and T-Paw.

One of that person's messages was that Republicans need to recruit candidates who don't fit the Republican stereotype.

"Think purposely about elevating and promoting people who are running for office who don't fit the stereotype of Republicans. The value of that is the messenger sort of matters. It does matter."

That being said, calls to Anthony Kiedis' garage went unanswered.
