Idiot of the Week: Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC)

jim-demint.jpgAnother work week has ended, and Saturday heralds a new Idiot of the Week. There are so many to pick from, but I found that this week's winner really stood out.

I am going with Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) this week. Oh, you remember Sen. DeMint. He's the one who referred to health care reform as Obama's Waterloo last summer and talked about how stopping health care reform would "break him." Now he has himself all mixed up with the teabaggers.

So what has DeMint been up to recently that earned him our award? Not only is he opposing any sort of health care reform, but because he's actually been praying in public, in direct opposition to his bible, for the defeat of health care reform legislation. That's right, Sen. DeMint is praying to his god for help killing health care reform in the Senate!
