The Last Word's former favorite Republican candidate Tim Pawlenty resurfaced on a last night's Colbert Report.
T-Paw dropped out of the GOP presidential race because finishing behind Michele Bachmann and Ron Paul in the Iowa straw poll is "enough for any one person to endure." That's his reasonable side talking.
He said winning these days requires tons of money and more of reality TV show component — two qualities his campaign lacked.
When questioned about juggling these factors among GOP voters, he randomly blurted out, "I thought about shooting sparks up my butt." For the record, that's a direct quote.
What did you do with our boring yet middle-of-the-road candidate that we've come to know over the months? His campaign should've unleashed T-Paw 2.0 a long time ago. Better late than never.
