Sen. George Voinovich (R-OH) blames southerners such as Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina and Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma for ruining the Republican Party:
They get on TV and go “errrr, errrrr.” People hear them and say, “These people, they’re southerners. The party’s being taken over by southerners. What they hell they got to do with Ohio?”
It should be noted that Mr. Voinovich is retiring from the Senate next year.
