Pawlenty on ‘The Daily Show’ and graduation ceremony fight

A pair of videos you may want to watch so you know what everyone is talking about. Gov. Tim Pawlenty appeared Thursday on 'The Daily Show.' And a fight breaks out in the stands at North St. Paul's North High School graduation ceremony.

Impressions of Pawlenty: the governor is way taller than Jon Stewart. Also, Pawlenty knows that TV trick of sitting on the back of your blazer to keep it from bunching up on your shoulders. Oh, and our governor knows how to play it straight, even on 'The Daily Show.'

The St. Paul Pioneer Press explains:

A fight broke out Wednesday night at Aldrich Arena. Fists were flying not on the ice but in the stands, and not at a hockey game but at a high school graduation.
