Poor Tim Pawlenty: Left at the altar again

As VP buzz solidifies around GOP Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin tonight, Twitter users took time out to tweet their condolences to two-time loser and former GOP Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota:

Dude… Pawlenty got passed over AGAIN. Damn…

Now Pawlenty, on Sunday shows, has to explain why he was passed over. Again.

Poor Tim Pawlenty. Always a bridesmaid, never the bride.

Pawlenty seems to be taking it well enough:

Pawlenty: "I didn't enter this thinking I was going to be the VP candidate so I'm not disappointed and I'm excited about his candidacy"

"He's going to make a great pick and it's going to be announced tomorrow," Pawlenty says. "I'm excited about it."

Well, this would be one way to turn lemons into lemonade…

RT @pourmecoffee: If Tim Pawlenty gets passed over again, I hope he turns it into art like Adele.

We’re in the mood for a little “Rumor Has It,” how about you?
