Pawlenty cuts mullet, readies for VP

Originally uploaded by johnvierdsen

It could be “good and Pawlenty” for Sen. John McCain, who reports have it is still looking at the Minnesota governor for the Republican nomination for vice president.

The latest news of Pawlenty’s intentions, and possibilities, has it that he has shorn the Wisconsin Waterfall that has been with him of late, going for the veep-ish clean style. Behold, and read ye of Salon:

But the real sign Pawlenty might be interested in being McCain’s running mate came in a slightly subtler form late this spring: He cut his hair. Gone was the mullet he’d worn for years, even though Minnesota media outlets and political blogs mocked him for it. As Pawlenty hit the Sunday talk shows in May and June, he sported a trim new look.

And, since Gov. Mark Sanford has proven his inability to do anything meaningful beyond make friends with talking heads in NYC and DC, killing his veep chances, it appears our favorite crazy, Grover Norquist, likes Pawlenty, too.

“He’s a young guy, he’s reasonably hardcore, the social conservatives like him fine, and the fiscal conservatives like him fine. I think he’d always be in your top five as [likely picks], and depending on what side of the bed McCain got out of on the day he decided, he could get it.”
