If you're one of those Democrats who's been riding a huge schadenfreude high since November 6, you probably took news of South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint's retirement in the customary way. With the online equivalent of going "WHOOOOOOOO" out of a limousine's sunroof, after doing a shooter with one of those awesome names like "Sex Intercourse with Boobs Outside."
Remember Todd Akin? The imbecile Missouri state representative who made those "legitimate rape" comments about five weeks ago? Well, now that some time has passed and he's officially still in the race to be Missouri's next Senator (yesterday was the last day for him to withdraw), Republicans are lining up to support him again.
