‘Clueless II’ Starring Jim DeMint

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) may have more in common with Alicia Silverstone’s “Cher” than we know. Cher is attractive, popular and fashion-obsessed. She refers to her brother (in the movie) as “granola breath.” Until DeMint came to Washington, the senator hadn’t heard of a certain well-known conservative columnist.

From a NYT story over the weekend:

Mr. DeMint’s supporters describe him as a blank slate when he first came to Congress, with little ideology and little knowledge of Washington. Barry Wynn, a former South Carolina Republican Party chairman, recalled him asking about various reporters. “One he’d never heard of was Bob Novak,” Mr. Wynn said, referring to the conservative columnist. “He hadn’t been listening to ‘Crossfire’ or whatever people of that era had been listening to to form their views.
