Rep. Tim Scott tweeted out his resignation from the House today, as he gets ready to replace Senator Jim DeMint. DeMint announced his resignation from the Senate last month.

Congratulations pour in.

And, of course, the first reprehensible tweet comes in immediately.

More to come? Based on what happened after the announcement that he was to become Senator Scott, we expect so, sadly.

Predictable, yet still utterly contemptible.
