I can’t say I am sad to see my one Senator leave office, but I do like how he decided to unleash on the southern Republicans:
The GOP’s biggest problem? “We got too many Jim DeMints (R-S.C.) and Tom Coburns (R-Ok.). It’s the southerners. They get on TV and go ‘errrr, errrrr.’ People hear them and say, ‘These people, they’re southerners. The party’s being taken over by southerners. What they hell they got to do with Ohio?’ ”
This very thing could be seen in last year’s election when the Republicans lost all New England seats. It’s also the epitome of the shrinking tent syndrome plaguing today’s GOP.
