Operation Purity failed to "bag" another prime target last night in Utah's GOTP Senate Primary as Orrin Hatch survived to move onto what should be his last election in November.
And since this is Orrin's last rodeo, I believe it is time for Orrin to be Orrin and shake off the bonds of tea party extremism. No longer should Orrin parrot screeds from right wing blogs on judicial nominations. He should cast aside conspiracy theories and delusions of the fever swamp. He should stand tall like a man and castigate those who mercilessly teabagged his colleague Bob Bennett in 2010. Two years of kissing up to assholes to avoid Bailout Bob's fate has to be worth something.
Now is Orrin's last time in the sun and his last opportunity for a legacy other than as a pathetic party hack.
Let Orrin be Orrin.
