When Gov. Tim Pawlenty's planned (pre-presidential?) book was unveiled this week, it triggered some buzz among national political reporters.
The rollout of the book, to be published next January but already available as a pre-order from Amazon, also subjected him to a bit of mockery because of the cover shot uncannily evokes Sarah Palin's bestselling "Going Rogue." Noting that Pawlenty's subtitle -- "An American Journey" -- echoes Palin's "An American Life," a Vanity Fair blogger compared the guv's image unfavorably with other presidential tomes.
