Congressman Tim Scott, replacing Jim DeMint...

Any ideas of what he's about? Yes, he's a tea party guy from 2010. Yes, he's black in South Carolina, but can I assume that he's just token? Is he as batshit insane as Allan West? (Or Nikki Haley, for that matter?)

1. For starters

'...Tim believes that a society is ultimately judged by how it treats its weakest and most vulnerable members. That is why he is 100% pro-life and opposes euthanasia and assisted suicide, as well as the non-consensual withholding of care because of disability, age, or infirmity. Tim will fight for the rights of the unborn, and will resist government funding for abortions."

He's just the type of black guy racists love. Like Cain and West.

3. Deja vu

South Carolina already has an anti-gay "confirmed bachelor" senator. This might get interesting.

DeMint is crazy and his replacement is just as crazy

6. Thanks

That's pretty much what I thought. I have a FB friend who is just going crazy thinking Tim Scott is just the right person at the right time. I know that he doesn't know jack about Tim, but is willing to sing praises because he's picked by a teabagger.
