Extreme Pawlenty

Via T. Miss, Pawlenty goes for a joyride in a stolen car.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty spent Sunday riding around Pennsylvania in a stolen van.

The theft was inadvertent; his Keystone State driver was told to pick up the keys to the vehicle in which he was to shepherd the governor at the Holiday Inn in Allentown, Pa.

"He did exactly what he was told, except it was the wrong Holiday Inn and the wrong van," said Pawlenty, who campaigned through Pennsylvania for presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain on Saturday and Sunday.

The van the driver picked up was a tricked-out touring vehicle, complete with an LCD video screen, an Xbox and video games and an iPod-ready, six-speaker stereo system.

I can't believe I haven't heard any commentators note that Pawlenty was proud of reducing taxes so that that I-35 bridge could collapse.

Looking forward to hearing that, again and again, if he's McSame's VP choice.
