Sen. DeMint: "I Am Just Going To Have To Create Pain" (POLL)

Posted: Updated:

In an interview with the evangelical World Magazine titled "The Taxpayers' Greatest Ally," Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) had some interesting things to say about his work with his colleagues in the Senate:

"I am not going to be able to persuade my colleagues to do the right things, so I am just going to have to create pain."

Okay, that is a bit intense. However, it may not even be the most intense statement from Sen. DeMint this week. On a conference call this morning, DeMint discussed health care reform: ""This health care issue Is D-Day for freedom in America... If we're able to stop Obama on this it will be his Waterloo. It will break him."

Which Comment Is Crazier?

Waterloo. Talk about inflammatory comments. And the historical reference makes no sense.

Pain. Scary, also... disturbingly kinky.

Neither. Makes sense to me.
