It's not every day that you hear the governor of your state mention you on a nationally syndicated radio show. That's exactly what happened yesterday when Governor Tim Pawlenty appeared on the Hugh Hewitt show. From the transcripts:
HH: That's the Fraters Libertas, and they're drunks.
TP: Yes. Exactly. We had them over for a social and they are...
I knew that we should have left Atomizer at home. Can't take him anywhere.
It should also be noted that Governor Pawlenty once again politely, but firmly slapped down Hugh's plea to add another honorary title to his collection. Something silly like "Gymnasiarch of The Twin Cities." Yeah, like this guy is in any position to advise us how to get in shape. Good call Governor Pawlenty. Hold firm on your "no new titles" stand.
By the way, if the granola crunchin', tree huggin', snow boardin', Coors swillin' bloggers from Colorado want to participate in some sort of a challenge with us, we say (in a John Kerryesque voice), "Bring It On."
Hockey, skiing, trivia, Stratego, knife fights, whatever. Our house, your house, Hugh's house, wherever. As long as it doesn't involve snowmobiles (given Hugh's track record), we're game.
Keep in mind that you're not just messin' with the Northern Alliance anymore either. Now, you're facing the full power of the MOB (Minnesota Organization of Bloggers) as well. Never go against the family.
