Jim DeMint resigns from Senate

 DeMint, who frequently clashed with the Senate Republican leadership during his career over taxes, spending and political tactics, said he will continue to push his conservative vision from outside Congress.
“I’m leaving the Senate now, but I’m not leaving the fight. I’ve decided to join The Heritage Foundation at a time when the conservative movement needs strong leadership in the battle of ideas,” DeMint said in a statement.

Yep, gotta get out of the line of fire that is Congress, eh, Buddy?  Wow, that new Heritage gig must be pretty lucrative for you to get of of Dodge.  Of course,, you will be taking that fat retirement package, available to those in Congress, after a mere one term. 

Yes, Jimbo, not only do you escape the heat of the Congressional 'kitchen', complete with Bennies, you now get to pile on a whole new set of bennies. What a smokin' deal for you, right?
