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.

Tomorrow, @reptimscott, you’ll be “@sentimscott“!

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

@reptimscott Let’s hope you don’t become the “Clarence Thomas” of the Senate where all you see is “white” when you look in the mirror….

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

Update:

@dpburnette @blackrepublican An Uncle Tom is any person perceived to be a participant in the oppression of their own people, i.e. Tim Scott.
