It means either Trey Gowdy or Tim Scott could be appointed to the Senate seat by Gov. Haley.
I hope he has building a new political party, the Tea Party in his sights.
Maybe Demint thinks he can kick Boner’s butt with greater force and frequency from the Heritage Seat.
Great news! DeMint can do more to communicate the values and benefits of Conservatism at Heritage than he can in the Senate. The Senates is a legislative body. We don’t need more laws. We need more Conservative Voters. DeMints background and experience as a communicator and marketer plus his unquestionable Conservative credentials make him a perfect fit for this role.
I see this move like the Biblical parable: DeMint will teach men to fish rather than being part of the machine that gives people fish.
(And I think one of his first new hires ought to be a certain Alaskan fishermans wife ;-))
This tells me a lot, none of it pretty:
1: Conservative voices are meaningless in today’s Washington.
2: The Senate is no longer an important deliberative house.
