Senator Tim Scott…

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will tap Congressman Tim Scott to fill departing Senator Jim DeMint’s slot in the Senate.  To see why he is a superb choice,  read this  and  this.

Because he’s a conservative,  MSM is  already jumping  on him,  quite predictably, and the NAACP has simultaneously  welcomed him  and dismissed him.   The  delicious irony  escapes the left.

Senate rules reform…

leave a comment »

Remember how the Democrats were going to hammer the Republican minority into a pool of spit,  and arrange things so that anything could pass with only 51 votes whenever Democrats wished?

Apparently,  more than a few Democratic senators figure they’ll be in the minority soon and didn’t want to live with the rules that Harry Reid thought appropriate for the other side.   The big,  bold agenda shrank down to a few  very modest changes.   Sen. Jim DeMint  doesn’t like them.
