With Tea Party darling Jim DeMint at its head, will anybody outside the conservative choir pay attention to the preaching of the Heritage Foundation?
Mercurial Tea-Party partisan Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina is leaving the Senate to head up the right-wing think tank, The Heritage Foundation. The Heritage Foundation has consistently been a collection of PhD’s and advertising experts whose true thinking was directed almost exclusively at finding justifications for right-wing ideology, particularly where a particular point of ideological purity faces criticism for failing to accomplish its claimed results when tested in the real world. Nonetheless, The Heritage Foundation has enjoyed the serious consideration of the Washington Beltway punditry, who acts as if their “studies” are as valid as those of CERN of NASA. Will those said pundits still treat The Heritage Foundation’s work as unbiased critical thinking now that it’s to be led by such an obvious partisan hack as Jim DeMint?
