Does anyone really believe for a second that this egomaniacal little man really resigned from a safe, power-wielding seat as a US Senator (not to mention the official mouthpiece for the Tea Party) to lead think-tank policy analyses, studies, and debates? Those of us who have had the misfortune of him as our Senator know there is not a chance in hell he made that move without having an ultimate prize in store. First of all, he is no "thinker." He is a sanctimonious, power hungry, control freak who is hell-bent on on shoving his beliefs down everyone's throats and expecting to be thanked for it. He resigned his Senate seat so he could live out his wet-dream of bringing the U.S. government to its knees at his feet.
With the Heritage Foundation and it's political arm Heritage Action, he sees his chance to do what he could not do as a US Senator - control and ultimately destroy democratic "majority rule" government. From his dark little corner in hell, Voldemort is wielding power, money, and his continued leadership of the Tea Party to force the GOP into performing suicide missions on his behalf.
And the Honorable Ernest "Fritz" Hollings agrees
