Jim DeMint: the Quitter
What is it about rightwing politicians who can’t even finish the term they were elected to serve? You betcha!
Senator Jim DeMint (R—Spanish Inquisition) will be leaving the Senate. He still has four years remaining in his current term. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will appoint a replacement senator until a special election can be held.
Jim DeMint will be leading the ultra-rightwing Heritage Foundation. A high-ranking member of the Heritage Foundation once said publicly that only property owners should be allowed to vote, so that gives you an idea of their politics. And in everybody’s favorite irony of ironies: the Heritage Foundation originally came up with the idea of the individual health insurance mandate in the early 1990s. It didn’t become synonymous with Soviet tanks rolling across America until President Obama adopted the idea.
Jim DeMint told Rush Limbaugh:
“I think the problem is, as conservatives, we have not taken enough control of our message and our ideas and communicated them directly to the American people.”
Hallelujah! That’s EXACTLY the problem. In their hearts, the American People WANT to ban all abortions, eliminate all government spending on that commie infrastructure, and increase “defense” spending so we can invade even more countries more often. This is what Americans truly WANT, but conservatives just haven’t been able to communicate this message clearly enough.
