[Minnesota] Gov. Tim Pawlenty landed a 17-inch walleye Saturday during the Governor’s 60th Annual Fishing Opener at Breezy Point on Pelican Lake, but Lt. Gov. Carol Molnau reeled in a 19-inch walleye about two-and-a-half hours earlier. . . .
“I have a wife who genuinely loves to fish. I mean, she will take the lead and ask me to go out fishing, and joyfully comes here,” the governor said before adding, “She loves football, she’ll go to hockey games and, I jokingly say, ‘Now, if I could only get her to have sex with me.'” The governor quickly clarified, “It’s a joke, it’s a joke.”
I can imagine McCain’s pollsters rushing new questions out into the field:
Are you more or less willing to vote for John McCain if his running mate jokes about being denied sex by his sportswoman wife?
Are you more of less willing to vote for John McCain if his running mate catches a 17-inch walleye?
Do you think Gov. Pawlenty knows what to do with a 17-inch walleye?
