My brother and I don't agree on nearly everything, but he's still my brother and I would give my life to defend him. What's so hard to understand about political polar opposites getting along outside of that arena?

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."
