Governor And Friend

Gov. Tim Pawlenty pulled a Flair pen out of his pocket as he began his
Saturday speech.

"I brought my friend with me today," he said, to an audience who knew
and loved his reference to the famous "veto pen."

Pawlenty said he is proud to hold the modern-day record of vetoing the
most bills. And he said he would do that any time Democrats who control the
Legislature send him bills he does not like.
