Wowsers! Did not see this one  coming:

Can’t really say that I blame him. IMO, you can get done more when you’re not an elected official than when you are. Being elected means being bound by the one-sided rules on political correctness.
The good news is that Gov. Nikki Haley (R) would get to appoint a replacement . Thoughts on who she should? Twitter is abuzz with the possibility of Rep. Tim Scott being in the running. Can you imagine the liberal heads that would explode if she did that?
Update: Here’s the official announcement  of the DeMint resignation.
