Jim DeMint praises Walker; "Who's willing to take the pain in order to save the whole state."

You know you've passed over to the dark side once Sen. Jim DeMint takes you under his wing. My favorite authoritarian reveal is this comment from DeMint:
DeMint: "We really need someone, like a governor Scott Walker, who's willing to take the pain in order to save the whole state."

So to be clear, Walker is the one taking the pain, sacrificing, saving the state? Really, saving the state? This is called the god complex, and it seems almost every Republican I can think of suffers from it; Paul Ryan wants to save Medicare, the Fitzgerald's want to save one party rule, Robin Vos wants people to forget about getting a beer poured over his head so he's saving from government assistance. Oh and Rebecca Kleefisch, she's never had anyone take her seriously, until now.

They're "leading," and doing it for us. Here's Ed Schultz with a great takedown:
