Might And Right
Those in the pay of Senator Orrin Hatch point to the Senator's riches as validation of the Senator's continued career. Senator Hatch is obviously a good Senator because he has all the money and power. Might makes right. Sound reasonable? Is that truly compatible with "Utah's values"? What about Utah's history? Did might make right every time Joseph Smith was arrested and imprisoned on ridiculous charges? Did might make right when he was assasinated? Did might make right when Mormons were mobbed and driven through multiple states? Senator Orrin Hatch may survive November, but his generation of politics is on its last leg.
