Former Senator Trent Lott, currently a lobbyist, wants no more Jim DeMints in the Senate. Here are his exact words:
"We don't need a lot of Jim DeMint disciples," Lott said in an interview. "As soon as they get here, we need to co-opt them.""Co-opt" according to the dictionary means "to assimilate, take, or win over into a larger or established group."
Obviously, Lott likes the status-quo of today's Senate, which has no power to do anything, and didn't do anything meaningful before they lost everything to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.
Senator DeMint is one of the few at the top of my list of real conservatives who actually care about Constitutional principles, and isn't afraid to talk about them.
I'm left speechless after reading the article in the Washington Post. Maybe tomorrow I'll find the words to express my dismay. In the meantime, Karen at The Lonely Conservative has another incident within this same story, involving bloggers.
