Some people really don’t know when it’s time to go.
GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch, apparently still gloating over his machine’s knockout of former potential primary challenger Rep. Jason Chaffetz, told a Utah TV station that he wouldn’t rule out a 2018 bid for an 8th term in the U.S. Senate.
Watch it here.
Looks like he’s confident he’ll be crowned for his 7th without any opposition. That’s not what I’m hearing from grass-roots Tea Party folks in Utah who haven’t given up the fight for a fresh, conservative face after nearly 40 years of Hatch’s service as a “bipartisan” tool for bigger government. More on that soon.
Meanwhile, one of Hatch’s dedicated sycophants has penned a nearly 600-page tome lauding his long, long, long Beltway career.
Our quote of the morning comes from the Club for Growth’s response to the ridiculous attempts to paint Hatch as a Tea Party vanguard.
Ditto this x 1,000:

“No amount of desperate, election-year hagiography can hide Orrin Hatch’s record,” Club for Growth spokesman Barney Keller said, referring to a word that means an idolizing biography. “I suspect conservatives in Utah will find fiction novels about Orrin Hatch’s record more useful as kindling than bedside reading.”
