Orrin Hatch – Formerly Respected Conservative; Now Senile Old Fool

Thinks Being Utahn of the Year is an Honor

Unlike most Republican conservatives, at one time in history Utah Senator Orrin Hatch actually had a few, a very few but a few, moments of contribution to the national welfare. No more, his rants on t he tax bill showed he has been divorced from reality. But he was just named Person of the Year in Utah by its flagship newspaper.

Utah's biggest newspaper anointed the state's longtime Republican senator, Orrin G. Hatch, as its “Utahn of the year,” a distinction that came with a nearly full-page photo on the paper's front page on Christmas Day.
The senator seemed to appreciate the recognition, tweeting an image of the front page and thanking the Salt Lake Tribune for “this great Christmas honor.”
'But wait, thinks are not what they seem to be.

Along with a news article and the photo, the newspaper published a scathing editorial that took aim at the senator's recent record, most notably his part in the Trump administration's decision to shrink two national monuments in the state, and said that the designation was meant to anoint the Utahn who had had the most impact, “for good or for ill.”
Hatch had earned the title because of his part in the “dramatic dismantling” of the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments, his role in helping to pass the recent tax code overhaul, and his “utter lack of integrity that rises from his unquenchable thirst for power,” the editorial board wrote.

Gosh Orrin, maybe you want to go back and read what they actually wrote about you.
