I can definitely see DeMint and Reid having a pleasant drink together.
The thing is:
If it came right down to it, I'm sure that Harry Reid would stick a knife in the back of his good friend Jim DeMint -- if Harry felt he had "a good reason".
And I suspect that Jim DeMint might put friendship above all else, and absolutely refuse to ever stick a knife in the back of his good friend Harry Reid.
The Republicans don't get it. The friendship is fake -- it just goes one way.
As Rush keeps pointing out, they get seduced by the beltway culture. DeMint is an ad man--he made his fortune selling himself.
