I missed this, but Chris Cilizza caught it: After Pawlenty attacked Obama for standing by his opposition to the surge, Bayh responded incredulously: “Tim, you opposed the surge….I read about it in your hometown newspaper.” Pawlenty was rocked back on his heels, noting that he had said at the time that he was “skeptical” of the surge.
To me, this should disqualify Pawlenty. It steps all over one of McCain’s key talking points. If McCain thinks he has settled on T-Paw, well, there’s a line from a song in the movie Oliver: I think he better think it out again!
