From Today's Salt Lake Tribune:
I don't doubt the earnest desires of most individual legislators to want to make a difference in the lives of those they claim to serve. But since it's widely known that too many chefs can spoil the soup, these good intentions too often get left out of the recipe.
As a collective body, the Utah Legislature is the biggest bunch of self-righteous, self-serving, bloviated buffoons that ever sucked air. Rampant disregard for the electorate is evidence of an assumed moral superiority that separates them from the reality in which the rest of us dwell.
Utah's legislative whoredom, with its lust for speculative soccer ventures and nuclear waste storage, is proof that integrity is not only for sale in Utah politics; it's cheap and easy too.
