Sen. Jim DeMented (NW, SC) has decided to take his batshyte crazy ideas over to the Heritage Foundation. Why? One, for the money, he never really cared about the people in his state. Two, because he realizes the GOP is going to have to go to the middle to survive and he wants to continue to be unaccountably batshyte crazy.
Unfortunately, batshyte crazy Niki Haley is going to get to appoint DeMented successor. So in all likelihood SC will still be represented by a nitwit.
