It looks like Tim Pawlenty hasn’t fully undergone his transition to the Dark Side:

I would say regardless of the circumstances, congratulations to President Obama for winning the Nobel Prize. I know there will be some people who are saying “Was it based on good intentions and thoughts or is it going to be based on good results?” But I think the appropriate response is when anybody wins a Nobel Prize that is a very noteworthy development and designation and I think the appropriate response is to say “Congratulations.”

Low-key, classy and appropriate.

    Perhaps Pawlenty is thinking he should just wait until 2016 to bother running.

    No, the appropriate response to this kind of absurdity is along the lines of Mankiw's delicious satire.
