Swift Boaters and Wolfowitz for Pawlenty. Get Angry, Liberals!

Tim Pawlenty's fundraising report proves that he impressed one key Republican donor -- Bob Perry, the Texas homebuilder who bankrolled the Swift Boat Vets in 2004. Perry and his wife Doylene maxed out to Pawlenty, donating $5000 each in April and again in May. Pawlenty also got Pete Ricketts, the Nebraska Republican and erstwhile U.S. Senate candidate, to max out. And as WaPo's Aaron Blake first noticed, he got $1000 from Paul Wolfowitz. This all augers well for the SuperPAC/party unity portion of the campaign, if Pawlenty can get so far.
