2. PLEASE don't write Utah off. I will elaborate. It was BLUE in the 60s ...
Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon is a Democrat... and Howard Dean's 1st cousin.
Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson is a Democrat... and the keynote speaker in the anti-Bush Rally last year
We have a vibrant progressive community:

Personally, I'd love to see the first DU Convention in SLC. Please give Pete a couple bucks.

3. Wasn't Hatch the guy who said that someone should assassinate...
Clinton? I seem to remember Al Franken wrote that he contacted the Secret Service to report the 'threat' and was told that they were 'aware' of Hatch's comments and investigating them. Funny how no charges were brought.

12. I remember reading about it in Franken's book...
..."Lies and the Lying Liars who Tell Them," but I don't have my copy to hand so I can't be entirely sure of when or in what context the comment was made.

15. I'm hunting for one now.
I know Franken's book (which I mention above) discusses it, so I'm googling that and hoping the quote drops out.

16. Not only that Hatch is a hypocrite. No surprise is it for a Republican?
When they hunted Clinton about Monica, Hatch was in the news constantly denouncing Clinton and pushing for his impeachment. Yet, Hatch has openly supported sexual predator Arnold Schwarzenegger even to the point of promising Arnold that he would push for a Constitutional ammendment so that he could run for President.

17. NO KIDDING. He wants AHNOLD to run for president. If that isn't worth
$15 to Pete or a recommend for this thread, i don't know what is.

20. I read it in a story in the Deseret Times or whatever that
newspaper is in Utah. I didn't bookmark but tommorrow I will see if I can find it in the archives. But from memory Arnold went to Utah to do some physical fitness photo op with Hatch. Hatch was interviewed and said that Arnold would be a fine President after he was governor and that he would look into putting forth an ammendment so he could become President even though being foreign born.

21. That would be the Deseret News www.desnews.com
The "local church" paper. The "other" paper (though in the last year bought by a Republican) is the sltrib.com

25. Wasn't hatch the dickweed who...
...gave up classified intelligence about Al Qaida on CNN? Or am I thinking of some other lying scumbag Republican who belongs in jail for the rest of his natural life as a traitor? I remember it was Hatch or some other old, white, stupid motherf***er of a Republican.

(The upshot? I hate Hatch, too!)

30. That's what I remember, too
So I did a little background check, and found out how it happened. Turns out it wasn't Senator Hatch, but his evil alterego Henry Gibson:



Here's an early photo of Hatch coming out of the woodwork...er, closet, er...whatever



And I'm pretty sure his butthead performance on CNN that day and in divers situations since has been merely a manifestation of his butthead performance as Nilva the Ferengi on Star Trek.
