Well, that is a smart move. With Harry Reid holding the house bills hostage, might as well do something constructive.

This is good news. DeMint will do less damage in congress and the Heritage foundation will become completely incompetent.

'Ol PooPoo might surprise some, but he's sorry to see Jim Dimmit leave the Senate.

Thanks to his PAC, Senator Dimmit helped make it possible for the likes of Christine O'Donnell, Sharon Angle, Todd Akin, & Richard Mourdock to win their primaries. For that Senator Dimmit deserves the thanks of a grateful nation.

Right!

When the going gets tough, teabaggers cut and run.

They keep calling the Heritage Foundation a "think tank".

LOL!!! Think tank??? That's like calling Rush Limbaugh a Speedo model!

Hopefully SC will replace DeMint with a relentlessly unpatriotic far left of Chairman Mao Obama supporter.

Benghazi is Obama's think tank. What kind of thinking turns a president into a coward?

Spot on !!!! I shall miss Jimmy Dimwit as well. He was soooooo good at recruiting fine, fine candidates ......

However, Dimwit obviously saw the writing on the wall. Thanks to him, and his ilk, he knows it is very unlikely the Rethugs will be winning back the Senate in the next 12 years.

Jimmy, we hardly knew ye..........

The Heritage Foundation!

Alright!

Now instead of being just a mouthpiece for
RW lies and propaganda, he can start making
it up at the source.

He got kicked upstairs.

Good question. Better ask George W. Bush. He knows all
about all there is to know about being a yella-belly.

Or maybe Romney. Mormon missionary avoiding the draft?

Wow, we're getting Crazy Jim DeMint (R-Teabag) out of the Senate? That's GREAT news for America! Guy was nutty as a fruitcake. He's much better off heading a Foundation of people like himself than he was representing Americans in the Senate.

Of course, S. Carolina's right-wing Gov. Haley will probably just find herself another Teabagger-approved Republican to stick in his seat, but they couldn't be worse than Crazy Jim.

A good day!

Elsewhere it was reported the outgoing leader of Heritage Foundation made just under $1,000,000 a year.

That's about a 500% boost for the outgoing Senator...
