I know the right-wing has wet dreams about the Petraeus which are downright fascist, but considering the guy has issued a Shermanesque denial for the position its ridiculous.
Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who is on Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) vice presidential short list, criticized Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) yesterday for his selection of Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) as his running mate. Instead, Pawlenty said that Obama should have picked Gen. David Petraeus, whom he considers “an outstanding leader and somebody who would better represent the mainstream of the country.”
When McCain doesn't get Iraqi-Jesus to run with him and names, say, Tim Pawlenty, what will the latter say?
Not that these idiots are ever called on their bullshit, but I'm ever hopeful.
