    OT: GOP finally kick the mole out, now it's almost a real GOP.

    S. Carolina senator Jim DeMint was the main Tea Party backing within GOP, and almost F**ked up the fiscal cliff in 2011 by black-mailing the GOP's vote in the House. He was the instigator who revolts against the file and rank in the party. They made the GOP looks like a cry baby throw-a-fit in Walmart, only hard spanking can stop him. The real conservative very rich well educated stateman-like GOP candidates were what I used to vote for, I don't see them any more. The 2012 election big loss showed voters (at least the matured) do not respect the GOP any more.

    *****DeMint, 61, had always planned on leaving after two terms, according to a DeMint adviser.

    DeMint, a kingmaker among conservatives, is highly influential and well-beloved in the Tea party movement, and has been a thorn in the side of establishment Republicans. In 2009, he was the first to endorse Marco Rubio of Florida in his 2010 Senate bid, at the time that the National Republican Senatorial Committee was backing Florida Gov. Charlie Christ.

    He was also a powerhouse in the 2012 election. He held a highly-sought endorsement in congressional races and used his super PAC, Senate Conservatives Fund, to back Tea party favorites in GOP primaries. Among his picks were successful Senate newcomers Ted Cruz of Texas, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Debbie Fischer of Nebraska.

    "I know I'm leaving the Senate better than I found it with some real leaders," DeMint said Thursday, referring to his role in "stocking the Senate with solid conservatives." *****

    Yeah, he was the one who made the new conservatives look like stupid cry babies in the congress.
