Ouch! Ouch! My Brain!

by Chris Bodenner

Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who I thought was a reasonable Republican, panders to Hannity:

[T]his decision by Eric Holder today to politicize interrogations, to bring it into the White House, we should be prosecuting individuals who are involved in the war on terror as terrorists. They are cold blooded killers. We should not be prosecuting individuals who are working hard day in and day out to protect this country. [...] The attorney general should be reminded we are still a nation at war and CIA shouldn't stand for "can't interrogate anyone."

Lame joke aside, there is so much intellectual dishonesty packed into his comments I don't know where to start. But Adam Blickstein does:

If Pawlenty had even the slightest bit of knowledge of our intelligence community, he would know that the CIA in recent history barely had the experience nor capacity to interrogate terror suspects, something that was traditionally done by the FBI or military.

Also, in what is now becoming a trend, the governor drops another doozy:

Having the Democrats watch your money and keep an eye over your money is like having Michael Vick watch your dog for the weekend.
