More DeMint

So it looks like Jim DeMint and his merry band of right-wing lunatics are going to visit Honduras after all to support the coup leaders, even though doing so violates the Logan Act of 1799 stopping unauthorized U.S. citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. Mitch McConnell made a big deal out of it and of course the Obama Administration caved.

I suppose it doesn't matter since DeMint's not going to be able to actually do anything except hold up Obama's appointments. He's not going to save the coup leaders. But the moral compass of the Republican Party is somewhat below sane.
