DeMint Compares Honduras Coup To Franken’s Election

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), who has been a staunch supporter of the recent coup in Honduras against leftist President Manuel Zelaya, made a rather interesting comparison on the Senate floor today:

“On what basis does the Administration demand Zelaya’s reinstatement?” DeMint asked. “His removal from office was no more a coup than was Gerald Ford’s ascendance to the Oval Office, or our newest colleague Al Franken’s election to the Senate.”

Um…I thought Republicans were calling Franken’s election an illegitimate coup!
