Not Torchgate’s revenge: Rocket Man

Not Torchgate’s revenge: Rocket Man called it. Looks like Tim Pawlenty lives to fight another day. The Star Tribune’s story is “Pawlenty campaign hit with $600,000 penalty.” The campaign finance practices board didn’t want to inflict a lethal blow to Pawlenty outright, it just wanted to cripple him. Rocket Man to the contrary notwithstanding, this seems to me like the worst of all possible outcomes. I think my analysis was overly optimistic, which is usually Rocket Man’s function, but I do want to acknowledge the error in my analysis of yesterday evening. I had already been proved wrong at the time I posted my predictions; that should not technically be possible.
