He'd get my vote

I wish Senator Jim DeMint was going to be on the Presidential ballot this November. I'd vote for him just based on his comments and reaction to the Berkeley City Council trying to make the Marines move their recruiter office.

“This is a slap in the face to all brave service men and women and their families. The First Amendment gives the City of Berkeley the right to be idiotic, but from now on they should do it with their own money. If the city can’t show respect for the Marines that have fought, bled and died for their freedom, Berkeley should not be receiving special taxpayer funded handouts. I am currently drafting legislation to ensure that American taxpayers aren’t forced to pay for this insult by rescinding all of the earmarks for Berkeley in the Omnibus Appropriations bill, and to transfer the funds to the Marine Corps.”
Go Jim!
