Tim Pawlenty Gets Glitter-Bombed at San Francisco Book Signing (Video)

Has no heart to leave in San Francisco
The incredible nerve of GOP presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty to camp out in San Francisco and sign copies of his book, Courage to Stand.

But San Francisco showed him. The man who is seemingly anti-everything (gays, abortions, nonChristians) was unpleasantly surprised when a Code Pink member tossed a bag of pink glitter onto the Republican, and then yelled at him: "Where is your courage to stand for gay rights and women's rights?"

She continued shouting this over and and over while being escorted out of the Moscone Center by police.

This officially marks Pawlenty, a former governor of Minnesota, as the next target of politicians progressives love to hate. As you might recall, Code Pink has targeted a list of other unsavory Republicans with its glitter-bombing tactics, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

But we have to agree with Pawlenty on one thing: Pink really isn't his color.
