I see (via John Cole) that South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint greeted the departure of Arlen Specter by stating that, “I would rather have 30 Republicans in the Senate who really believe in principles of limited government, free markets, free people, than to have 60 that don’t have a set of beliefs.”

It sounds nice, but his party stands for tax cuts and torture; and if you hear them prattling about limiting government, it is because they no longer control the reigns.

UPDATE: Sestamibi comments:

“. . . controls the reigns”????!!!

Either this is a pun or a typo or you are totally illiterate.

Obviously, it is an unintentional pun.
