    Default Confirmed: Senator Mike Lee is a wanker

    What is it with this guy that he always finds new ways to be annoying? His latest:

    https://www.sltrib.com/news/politics...medium=twitter

    Sen. Mike Lee says KSL.com is too liberal, wants the LDS Church to sell it
    How could the apple fall so far from the tree? Rex Lee was a sharp guy. I don't get it.

    LOL... too liberal. That is funny.


    But he is right that church should sell it and the deseret news. Didn't the church start KSL so it could broadcast conference or something? They don't need it anymore. There is this thing called the internet.

    This morning I heard (on KSL - Ha!) that if Trump wins the election, he has Mike Lee and his brother Thomas (I think that's the name) on his short list for potential supreme court nominations in the future.

    I don't know Thomas - but this announcement should cost Trump a few more votes than it will.

    Everything that Mike Lee ever does can be explained if you assume that there's a line in his patriarchal blessing that leads him to believe he will be a Supreme Court justice.

    Tom Lee is a million times better than Mike, and currently sits on the Utah Supreme Court. How that political hack Mike could ever sit on the U.S. Supreme Court strains credulity.

    Well - with that clarification I now know which Trump is bound to nominate given the chance. I don't want to give it away, but I'm pretty sure it rhymes with Bite Me.

    Agree with commando that Thomas is the good son. Mike is the Trump humper so he would probably get the nod.

    It kills me that he stole Bob Bennett's seat through his manipulation of the party primary process. Bennett was a genuinely good man.

    I was registered as an independent before this happened. It propelled me to register as a GOP so I would have a say in such things.

    Bennett was a good man. His father, Wallace F, was also a good man (even though some people thought he was Deep Throat).

    Jim Bennet, Bob's son, is also a nice guy but hasn't seemed to have the gravitas and political heft that his father or grandfather had. I'm sure there are those among us that follow in the footsteps of great fathers and grandfathers and know what it's like to balance being your own man while living up to the expectations people have of you because of your heritage.

    Jim is still active in the United Utah Party, which I've thought about joining. I don't know why I haven't joined yet. United Utah is about as good as my current independent affiliation at the moment so I might as well up and join.

    Yeah - I was disappointed when Bennett was ousted.

    It was interesting to see the reaction at the caucuses the next round when Hatch was up for re-election. I think attendance quadrupled - led mostly by old-timers pushing for Orrin.

    I am sure glad that Texas doesn't require me to register for a party. I like voting in whatever party's primary I feel like. I don't like when the Dems stamp my voter card with a blue DEMOCRAT stamp just because I wanted to give Bernie a little love.

    He is just planting a seed in hopes his boy Huntsman can acquire KSL as well.

    That is horrible, even by Mike Lee standards.

    Just need to replace the helmet with the weirdest hairdo in politics, and the banner with a Trump Casino and Resorts flag, and we're good to go.
