Rightwinger Jim DeMint Leaving Senate to Head Extremist Heritage Foundation

Good riddance to ultra rightwing Senator Jim DeMint. He will be right at home as president of the ultra rightwing Heritage Non-Think Tank.

Think Progress has a list of some of DeMint's extremist accomplishments. Not for the weak-hearted!

The tea party nut is a perfect fit for the really really crazy Heritage Foundation: 
In an unexpected move, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), an arch-conservative and leader of the Tea Party movement, is resigning his seat in order to head up the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in Washington DC. DeMint has been among the most extreme members of the Senate since first getting elected in 2004, drawing a hard-right line on issues from unions to LGBT rights to abortion and beyond.
