TwoSouth Carolina GOP officials have praised the wingnut-atollah, Senator Jim DeMint, for watching the nation’s money like, um, I’ll let them speak for themselves:
There is a saying that the Jews who are wealthy got that way not by watching dollars, but instead by taking care of the pennies and the dollars taking care of themselves. By not using earmarks to fund projects for South Carolina and instead using actual bills, DeMint is watching our nation’s pennies and trying to preserve our country’s wealth and our economy’s viability to give all an opportunity to succeed.
The scary thing is that this is a letter to the editor and not an off the cuff comment. Just when I think things are reallyretrograde in the Gret Stet of Louisiana, someone from Secessionville says something really stupid and bigoted. Thanks for stepping on your schmeckles and making us look less bad, guys.
