The Ironical Hypocrite

Someone hand Jim DeMint, the junior Senator from South Carolina, a dictionary with the words “irony” and “hypocrite” highlighted, fast:

[Southers] will not give me a straight answer [as to whether he would allow TSA employees to have collective bargaining rights]. This is all about politics and not security.

This is the same Jim DeMint who has been blocking the nomination of Errol Southers as head of the TSA because, as Joe Sharkey so eloquently put it, “DeMint, a former market researcher, has surveyed the situation and identified the real terrorist threat to America: Unions.”

Now who’s about politics, Jim?
