Jim DeMint is out. Another Republican leaving his job because he can't win anymore. The timing does seem a little odd though. Only weeks after an election that saw his tea-backed candidates Sharon Angle and Richard Mourduck go down in flames.
Let's face it. DeMint's brand just isn't selling. It's so 2010. But my question is this; did DeMint really leave voluntarily? Did GOP donors express their extreme discontent with the Tea Party and it's chances of winning in the future? Or is Jim just another coward who runs from the fight he made, but can't win? I truly can't tell.
