Here’s a pretty good commercial launched by the Tim Pawlenty for President campaign just before he dropped out of the race after his third place finish in the Ames, Iowa Republican straw poll on Saturday. While Pawlenty, before his exit, was pandering to the extremists who dominate the nomination process, he seemed like the most reasonable of the current group of candidates. Now he has been replaced by Rick Perry, governor of Texas, who just yesterday said that Ben Bernacke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve, is acting treacherous and treasonous. Last I checked, the penalty for treason was death. Pawlenty out; Perry in. That was quite a trade.
