  •  A horrible message or truth here (7+ / 0-)

    DeMint believes--and may be correct--that the people who provide the funding and the messaging are FAR more powerful than the senators who vote. The senators are mere puppets. This is what he thinks--and is probably what's true.

    Listen to what he said on CNN today to another puppet, Blitzer. And think about it. He's right.

    THere are probably 100 House members today who know that rates have to go up on the rich in order to make them invest in their business rather than the Caymans. But they can't do a thing because without their masters they are are powerless. And they don't know how to do any other job. (Think of Paul Ryan, who has never had a private sector job in his life except a few weeks driving a hot dog truck.)
