I find it odd that DeMint (or anyone) would leave a job the people elected them to do to take a job in the NGO, think tank, or private sector. I also wonder if DeMint is basically admitting that his Tea Party appraoch is better suited to an ideological think tank than to politics .

No, he will have more effect on the Body Politic as head of Heritage than he would have as a member of the Senate minority.

Just before announcing his departure from the United States Senate, Jim DeMint gave me one last reason to praise him in that job.

He had spent Tuesday morning pointing out the lunacy of “putting revenues on the table,” which by necessity involves the belief that government does not have enough of our money. He advised against Republicans dividing over the issue and “treating the President’s proposal like it’s serious.”

He even delivered a twitter jab to the House leadership: "Speaker Boehner's offer of an $800 billion tax hike will destroy jobs and allow politicians in Washington to spend even more."
