The Times and Democrat, a newspaper out of Orangeburg, South Carolina, published a letter to the editor defending US Senator Jim DeMint for his opposition to congressional earmarks.

The author’s of the letter were Edwin O. Merwin Jr., Chairman, Bamberg County Republican Party and James S. Ulmer Jr., Chairman, Orangeburg County Republican Party.

Get a load of the beginning of their letter…

There is a saying that the Jews who are wealthy got that way not by watching dollars, but instead by taking care of the pennies and the dollars taking care of themselves. By not using earmarks to fund projects for South Carolina and instead using actual bills, DeMint is watching our nation’s pennies and trying to preserve our country’s wealth and our economy’s viability to give all an opportunity to succeed.

Wait. What?

How on earth? I mean…seriously…are you effing kidding me?

I eagerly await the inevitable apology.

Thanks to Pharyngula for the heads-up
