Pawlenty wins the race to the first life raft.

Tim Pawlenty has left his position as co-chair of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty will take over one of K Street’s most prestigious jobs as CEO of the Financial Services Roundtable.

The group announced Thursday morning that the former GOP candidate for president would replace long-time CEO Steve Bartlett, who is retiring. Pawlenty will step down as co-chair of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign to take the position.

I’m sure he’s wishing Mitt the best from the deck of his new ship.  He might even throw Mitt a life raft if Romney could just admit to himself that the ship is sinking.

I once thought this race was going to be close despite the obvious disparity in both talent and sanity between the two political parties.  But with all of Mitt’s blunders, this race is over and Pawlenty knows it.  And now we get to see an approximation of how many Americans are so high on Jesus that they’ll vote against their interests.
