(VIDEO) Colbert: Pawlenty endorsement of Romney like Miracle Whip endorsing mayonnaise
News of former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s endorsement of Mitt Romney for the GOP presidential nomination rippled all the way to Comedy Central’s Colbert Report Monday.
“Just weeks ago these two men were bitter rivals, opposite in every way. And look at them now, it’s like Miracle Whip endorsing mayonnaise,” Stephen Colbert said.
Romney also had Pawlenty backstage as his guest at last night’s CNN and tea party debate, which Colbert said was fitting: ”Plus one, also the number of votes his endorsement has brought to the Romney campaign.”
Pawlenty appeared on Colbert’s show last week, where Pawlenty joked that he considered shooting sparks out of his butt to add campaign excitement.
