I find it hard to believe that Mr. DeMint did not know about this job offer (and how he would respond to it) well before election day. But instead of leaving the choice of his replacement to all the people of his state, he decided to leave it the Republican governor alone. Pretty sad...but not surprising.

Maybe they can get a more "multi-faceted" Senator that will actually work for the country.

Well he can probably do less damage to our country in a Republican "think tank" than in our Congress. It's a good day for America.

Sen. Jim DeMint, patron saint of the tea party

Says who? He was a fundamentalist nut job. The tea party as originally formed would never have supported prayer in school nor a total ban on abortion. The smaller government conservatives need to form an actual party so they can control what is said about them in the press.
