Presidential Candidate Tim Pawlenty Goes Gaga

I've written about Going Gaga, but this is a curious turn.... Republican Presidential Candidate Tim Pawlenty Goes Gaga. Is he becoming a "little monster"?

Can anyone explain a Republican candidate for President of the United States providing ad lib supportive commentary on a pop superstar, known for her support of the gay community {e.g., marriage equality}, amidst the intense negotiations about our nation's debt ceiling? I think I know the answer.

His "all time" favorite performer is Bruce Springsteen, but he asks his interviewers what their favoriate Lady Gaga song is, then launches into a musical critique...an unexpected turn for a typical Presidential candidate interview.

It is notable that this was covered by the venerable The Washington Post.
