few speeches, went on a boat ride, and of course threw all of his talent into helping to defeat President Obama. (Sorry I had to take a break from typing until my laughter stopped. Back now.)
However since all of that he has been working behind the scenes helping to overthrow the Alaska Republican party and usually the only time we hear from him is when he blogs.
Yes you heard that right, just like his once powerful mentor, Joe Miller has also decided that if he can't beat them (And he essentially got his ass handed by us (He might as well join them, and is now a teabagging, conservative issue pimping, vaguely bearded blogger.
Usually I ignore his blog because it is just chock full of conspiracy theories, attacks on unions, lies about the President, and other completely useless typing tirades.
The other day I happened to receive a link to a story that I just felt I HAD to pass along.
Here you go, courtesy of Miller's blog self importantly titled Restoring Liberty:
South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint’s surprise announcement that he will leave the U.S. Senate in January to take over leadership of the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank has ignited speculation among grass-roots conservatives that DeMint may use the new post as a launching pad for a presidential bid in 2016.
“Jim DeMint will have a bigger microphone than before,” conservative direct-marketing pioneer Richard Viguerie tells Newsmax. “If he wants to, this opens up a lot more opportunities for him. I think there’s a decent chance that he’ll be a serious presidential candidate in four years.”
Viguerie called the move to Heritage “an intermediate step.”
“It’s going to be a boon to the cause, to Heritage,” he said. “And it gives [DeMint] a major opportunity to run for president in four years. And if so, he would be the instant front-runner among most conservatives.”
"The instant front runner among conservatives." Oh if EVER I wanted something to be true, I want this to be true! So according to Miller, DeMint is quitting the job he was elected to in order to run for President?
Well, gee it worked out so well for Sarah Palin, why the hell not?
You know right now the Republicans are licking their wounds and doing a
little soul searching to see where they went wrong this cycle. Many believe they will have a "come to Jesus" moment and decide to make a few changes in their crazy ass political platform and kick loose a few of the fringe nutjobs in order to market themselves better.
But what IF
they decide that the message is not the problem and that they simply did not select a batshit crazy enough
candidate run? Then by God Jim DeMint would be their man!
Just imagine if you will the possibility of a 2016 match-up between Hillary Clinton and Jim "Unmarried pregnant women should not teach public school" DeMint.
Oh, could the comedians, bloggers, and pundits GET so lucky?
