It will be interesting to see how the Utah newspapers treat this episode.

Not one word yet, regarding conflict of interest.

“notwithstanding his brother’s nomination to the 10th Cir. We just have to let him know that we see what Obama is trying to do!”

Are the “means” justifiable in the eyes of Utahans? This business is so underhanded, any way you look at it. Do the Liberals in Utah get a bad taste in their mouth when they think about this, or is it “the end justifies the means” mentality that prevails?

It’s a little hard for some of us to guage. I have always thought of Utah as one of the places that I would really like to live in some day. I hope it is able to save face once the dust on this has settled.

Drudge is linking to the Weekly Standard article on this at the top of his page:

We’ve got to call him and let him know we’re on to this crap!

As I said, most of the state is very conservative, but as you know, a lib is a lib no matter where you go. Sadly, I think you’re correct: “the end justifies the means.”

This being said, I’m hopefull Rep. Matheson will clearly understand, we see what’s going on here! I fact I relied these very sentiments to his staffer a little earlier this morning.

Oh, and it’s still a great place to live even if you’re not LDS. Very nice folks here :)

“I fact I relied...” = “In fact, I relayed these very...”

Typing way to fast! ;-)

I can tell, just by conversing with you ! :)

Thank you for the valuable insight, I’m sure it will prove to be very handy in the next few days (as things hit the fan). I’m afraid this is just the beginning...

Thank God for FR and other Blog sites where we can stay informed and let our thoughts be known!

It’s good to know there are many, many others who hold the same ideas, values, and love for this country!

Great conversing with you also!

You’re not alone. There are a number of us in Utah who don’t belong to the hegemony. We’re actively looking to boot both Matheson and Bennett this year. We’ll be coming after Hatch next.

Good point. I just wonder if his disgraceful appointment could cause every case he hears to be debated and retried, for it is now widespread knowledge that he’s a bought and paid for kind of guy.

Not a single word on the local TV news of the conflict of interest either. Just “oh isn’t it wonderful? Another Matheson following the family tradition” drivel.

BTW, JIm doesn’t really qualify as a blue dog. He’s more of a lap dog. Pet him right, and he curls up and licks your hand.

The potential is certainly there.
