Pawlenty: GOP is like Eminem

The Hotline has a nice summary of Tim Pawlenty’s speech to the College Republican National Convnetion this weekend.

To wit:

Opening his remarks with a reference to NBC’s “Inside the Obama White House” special, Pawlenty told the gathering of about 200 students, “I haven’t seen something that staged since that half-naked Austrian fell onto the face of Eminem at the MTV music awards.”

“Eminem was mad,” he continued, to laughter and applause. “And so, just like Eminem getting dumped on, we’ve got to kind of regroup. We’ve got to continue to fight. And we’ve got some things worth fighting for.”

Does that make Democrats the Sacha Baron Cohen of this analogy? Or are the Democrats the equivalent of Bruno? And if the Democrats are Bruno, is Pawlenty trying to make a point about social liberalism of…oh forget it.
