Republican Orin Hatch has spent nearly 40 years in the US Senate and he’s not used to reelection challenges. But this year he’s got several citizens sincerely interested in his chair, and this is enough to elicit the following testy response from Hatch:
“These people are not conservatives. They’re not Republicans,” Hatch angrily responds. “They’re radical libertarians and I’m doggone offended by it.”
Then Hatch, a former boxer, turns combative. “I despise these people, and I’m not the guy you come in and dump on without getting punched in the mouth.”
Temper, temper, Senator.
