Check out the rad flier that Timmy "Two Percent" Pawlenty has been handing out to supporters in Iowa. He protects guns. He has protected guns! He will continue to protect guns. There he is in orange, even, with a gun, and cute gun mittens. Vote TPAW! Please? Ehh... no.

In other Tim Pawlenty news, he is now trailing seventh-tier candidate Rep. Thaddeus McCotter in a poll. Granted it's a poll of McCotter's home state, Michigan, but, well... the other candidates didn't seem to have any trouble topping McCotter there! Only Tim Pawlenty, who just can't stop trying too hard.
