You know those days when you spend a couple hours after lunch walking around with a big smear of mustard on your cheek and none of your co-workers bother to tell you that you loom like an idiot and you don't even realize it's there until you use the bathroom after your meeting with the head of your department?
Well, that's kinda what Tim Pawlenty is going through right now, except that instead of a smear of mustard on cheek, he's got Tim Pawlenty all over him! And, apparently, nobody's told him. And now it looks like the voters of the Ames Iowa Straw Poll are going to have to be the ones to break the bad news…
Pawlenty said that he'd "probably" have to cut back on his national campaign organization if he fails to score the kind of straw poll result he’s looking for.
"Would we have to retrench in some fashion? Probably, but I don't think that’s gonna happen," Pawlenty said. "I think we're gonna do very well."
He continued: "If we do really bad, we'll have to reassess."
Unfortunately, I don't think a wet-nap is gonna do the job for this one.
