This Is What's Wrong With Politics In Utah

From today's Paul Rolly Lobbyists Sue and Cap Ferry lobby the legislature on behalf of both Real Salt Lake and the Utah Hotel and Lodging Association. The two are at opposite ends of the hotel tax idea. Lobbying firm Tetris' client Salt Lake County is currently being raped by Tetris' other client, Sandy City. Some people argue that Utah politics are great because they are efficient. Well, with people playing both sides, how can I argue with that?

What is wrong with politics in Utah is that it is too small of a fish pond. If they don't have clients that conflict, then they are related to each other in some way or the other.

Ethan, you are jusy regurgitating old news.

Lets have some original thought here. Maybe a little perspective tinged with passion.

As a blogger, you must hold yourself to a higher standard like Oblogatory Antidotes...unless of course we have no original thoughts and just really need to get laid (or married depending on the obediance level)

Why the personal attacks on Ethan?
First off- it is his blog. If you don't like it, don't read it.
Second off- he has a lovely wife and child, or so I hear.

I assume your talking about Brian's Utah Weblog. I keep him up there because when it's active, it's a great site.

Brian is active in politics locally and that's what he covers. It's a great read. If you check out his history, you'll notice he often takes breaks. He'll be back. And then you'll know why I have him up.
