Tim Pawlenty, Sex Jokes, and the Vice Presidency

I’ve criticized Minnestor Gov. Tim Pawelnty (who the kids apparently call T-Paw) for not doing enough to raise his public profile so that, if he is chosen as John McCain’s Vice President, people have heard of him. Well, this joke he made recently is certainly one way of doing it…

“I have a wife who genuinely loves to fish. I mean, she will take the lead and ask me to go out fishing, and joyfully comes here,” the governor said before adding, “She loves football, she’ll go to hockey games and, I jokingly say, ‘Now, if I could only get her to have sex with me.'”

The governor quickly clarified, “It’s a joke, it’s a joke.”

Hey, I thought it was funny.
