So Tim Pawlenty has announced his candidacy, and the guy is so boring you can hardly read his name without yawning. But I was thinking: Wouldn’t that be a huge advantage against Obama? Obama was supposed to be this exciting candidate who would change everything, and now people know what a crock that would be. So wouldn’t the perfect antidote to that be some super boring candidate with absolutely no cult of personality? The American people are just going to want someone competent in place of Obama, and we pretty much just assume that boring people are competent. And with a boring person, we’re definitely not going to get all our hopes up just to have them crushed as happened for many people with Obama.
So maybe Pawlenty is a really good idea. I probably should read up on him… but it’s just so hard to care, you know?
