Orrin Hatch is Finally Worrying about the Important Things: Like the BCS

You've got to hand it to Orrin Hatch. In a day when our economy is in a shambles because of greed in the highest places of government and corporationdom, and in a day when international respect for the United States is at an all-time low because of our bizarre foreign policy, he's worrying about far more important things, like whether the college football Bowl Championship Series is "un-American".

Hatch supports spying

Considering that President Obama and Congress are drilling us a hole to hell through which a handbasket can easily fit, it's hard to say just what's American anymore.

He supports making it nearly impossible for anyone to unseat him in the hallowed halls of power.

He supports giving Washington D.C. a representative in the House for the exclusive reason that Utah just might get a fourth seat out of the deal.

He supports the violation of habeas corpus and the torture of

The BCS is stupid. But un-American? Please. I wish Hatch would reserve that word for things that really matter, such as...well...unfettered spying on the American people, and advocacy of torture.

But never fear--his highest priority is actually protecting your rights...to see your favorite college football team in the Bowl Championship Series game.

"It (the BCS) may very well violate our nation's antitrust laws," Hatch said in a Senate speech, continuing complaints that it robbed the undefeated University of Utah of a chance to be declared national champion.

Hatch said the BCS did some tweaking to its system — but not enough — after he led Judiciary Committee hearings into it in 2003.

"However, as this past season demonstrates, these changes leave much to be desired in term of fairness and competition," he said. "The BCS system is anti-competitive, unfair and, in my opinion, un-American."

That's as American as cyanide-laced apple pie.

are drilling us a hole to hell through which a handbasket can easily fit, it's hard to say just what's American anymore. So, in keeping with the new socialistc vision of America, I don't think Orrin Hatch is going far enough. Let's make sure that we give each college football team an equal opportunity to be crowned champion.

Now that's American--as American as cyanide-laced apple pie.

  1. If I remember correctly, didn't Hatch also try to grandstand about getting involved in the last Baseball stoppage (lockout or strike whatever; back in the nineties)? There is no trivial issue too pointless for the man to seek some facetime.

  2. Hatch is, day by day, making himself increasingly irrelevant. I'm going to work my tail off to get this guy unseated. His time is long overdue.

  3. I suppose that most of the good senator's constituents care more about his grandstanding on facile issues such as the BCS than his performance on any of the other issues you cited. That's a sad state of affairs.

  4. I agree with Connor. Let's unseat this guy. Let's start an organization of Utahns Against Hatch, get a good candidate, get money and stop this man making a travesty of Utah. We deserve better for our bucks.
