Wingnut welfare, writ large. If you were wondering why in the world Jim DeMint would resign from the Senate to take over the leadership of the Heritage Foundation propaganda tank, wonder no more.

Senator Jim DeMint announced today that he was retiring from the Senate in order to run the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank.

He's also probably getting quite a raise. ...

As a Senator, he makes $174,000 per year. At Heritage, he'll probably make at least $1 million.
