I was disappointed to learn that, after praying on whether he should take his turn at this Republican primary season's game of Whack-a-Mole, our own Senator Jim DeMint has decided he can defend the wealthy and righteous better by remaining in the U.S. Senate.
I would think that God would certainly want DeMint to at least initiate a run in the presidential primaries, although not necessary for the reasons DeMint might imagine. I doubt very much that God sees Jim Demint as the American hero he himself sees in the mirror. God being partial to modesty, for one thing.
Senator DeMint is just too happy living in the shadows, surrounded by his stacks of money, and his stacks of wealthy friends and gullible Tea Partiers. I believe God may just be feeling a bit left behind by Jim about now. God may be wishing, as are many of his constituents, that he actually stepped out where we could actually have a good look at him, and announcing that he is considering a presidential run would be just the thing to bring that about.
If you recall, not so long ago, after The Donald was the flavor of the week, all that sunlight began to turn up some not so sweet odors, like his foul mouth, bad business deals, and decidedly undiplomatic plans for China. I would truly like to hear more from Jim DeMint than what he himself has scripted. And I believe God has the same desire.
So, if you want to take a moment to appeal to God to knock some sense into Senator DeMint, maybe he'll decide to run after all, and we can all get a good look at him.
