Pawlenty Fail?

One member of my army of liberal friends on Facebook posted the following video of The Young Turks (whatever that is) lampooning Pawlenty for his attempts at comedy while addressing a group of college age Republicans. Pawlenty's offenses? Making Bieber, Sheen and Gaga jokes. The commenter, who himself looks to be about 40 years old and is clearly liberal, blasts Pawlenty for not knowing what college age kids would think was funny and for prodding and pleading with the crowd for reaction. Funny, all I hear is the crowd responding in a positive if not overwhelming manner. Sure they're aren't rolling in the aisles, but then I presume Pawlenty wasn't there on a comedy tour. I guess not everybody has the comedy chops of our esteemed Commander in Chief, or at least Pawnety's writers aren't as good. The whole thing is an obvious and desperate attempt to make a Republican look bad just for the sake of doing it, and frankly they end up doing a terrible job at it if you ask me. Anyway, watch this video and tell me who really fails.

Sorry, have to agree with them on this one. He has sort of an M. Borders (our old elementary school friend) way about him.

I'm not saying the dude isn't boring. I'm only saying that this is a pretty piss poor job of portraying that.
