I don’t like this news. Unless there’s something hidden, I guess I understand it—the war of ideas and all that, versus frustratingly spinning his wheels in the Democrat-run Senate. But I’d been thinking that DeMint was a strong voice among Republicans in that body, and might even run in 2016. And now he’s quit? Don’t get it.
Boy, do I get the extreme importance of the war of ideas. And I realize that a Republican governor will get to appoint his replacement.
But still. My gut says this is a bad move and a bad sign. My gut’s been very talkative lately.
