Jim DeMint gets vocal about his disdain

South Carolina's representative from the Greenville-Spartanburg area, Jim DeMint, is making his dissatisfaction with some moves by the Republican party known.

The Post and Courier writes:
U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint said he expects American voters will give the Republican Party "an intervention" Tuesday, but he has high hopes that it will go into rehab to rediscover its conservative values.

DeMint, R-S.C., spoke to about 40 Republican supporters during a luncheon meeting in North Charleston today, and he seemed at one point to write off the chances of Republican presidential contender John McCain.

Pretty vocal remarks seeing as we're still a few days away from election day -- then again, he's not up for re-election until 2010.

Go read everything The Post and Courier has to say on it.

DeMint was a vocal supporter of "Drill here, drill now," and also was vocal against the bailout.
