Is Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) emerging as a Tea Party kingmaker? Politico reports:
It used to be that grassroots conservatives who aspired to run for the Senate would make a pilgrimage to see Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) in hopes of winning the imprimatur of the kingmaker and champion of conservative orthodoxy.
Now, just six months into his freshman year, the 40-year-old Republican junior senator from Utah has joined DeMint as a must-see for GOP candidates hoping to channel the energy of the tea party movement. He’s emerged as the second-most important conservative go-to guy in the Senate-and with DeMint’s pledge to not to marshal his resources against Republican incumbents this cycle, a meeting with Lee is essential for candidates battling the party establishment.
Lee came to the Senate as a giant-killer, taking out an entrenched Republican incumbent. Since getting there, he has joined Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) in compiling a constitutional conservative voting record. If Jim DeMint won’t be as active in the GOP primaries in 2012, it would be helpful to have a conservative like Lee getting involved.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
