We'll never get a president as smart as Jim DeMint

I wouldn’t get out of my driveway without my wife shooting me in the back. You’ve got to find somebody who’s smart enough to be a great president but dumb enough to want to be president.

Right now, I think I’m still too smart to be president.

-- Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C. (Via GOP 12.)
