  •  At least some do recognize their similarity to (0+ / 0-)

    zombies, not that they necessarily view this as a bad thing.  

    Whenever DeMint makes a statement on principle, yes, it is highly likely that he's like got some sort of an 'upside' in mind that benefits the 'inner circle' folks and RNC agenda, and doesn't necessarily intend any actions based on such principle should actually benefit the 99% or even 47% of us.

    Consider this possibility--that he's actually afraid some disappointed and disaffected RNC house members might defy RNC leadership, or defect to DNC, and support a Senate budget proposal due to the election results--perceiving the trends toward blue amongst women and minorities. It might be worth trying if hoping to establish some sort of record for running again later in 2 years as a more 'moderate' and 'centrist' candidate, one responsive to the mood of the electorate.
