Utah Conservatives Score Victory over Liberal Bennet

leave a comment »

Neo-Socialist RINO Robert Bennett was defeated this week in the Republican Primary for Utah Senator coming in third behind Tim Bridgewater and Mike Lee.   Bennett angered many grass roots conservatives by attempting to pass legislation and work with Democrats instead of voting against every Democratic proposal sight unseen.   A tearful Bennett called that atmosphere “toxic”, but his mood was in contrast to conservatives who reacted jubilantly.   Party delegate Steve Ford celebrated the news with his wives saying, “This is a victory for conservatives across the country.  We need politicians with principles and we’ll do what we can to get them.”

Bennett, one of the more liberal members of the United States Senate, has a long history of championing far left causes.   While he’s been a consistent pro-life vote he has shown some support for stem cell research.   While being the only member of either party against the Domestic Powers Benefits and Obligations Act, which would provide benefits to the domestic partners of gay and lesbian federal employees, he lacked the requisite conservative scowl.

Bennett has also failed to crack down on issues important to Utah conservatives such as women wearing pants in public, state residents who skip Sunday church services, and race mixing.   While there is no tea party in Utah because tea is a caffeinated beverage and hence prohibited by the Mormon faith, a grassroots conservative movement has likewise sprung up in the Polygamy State.  This was indeed a grim day for Democrat hopes in the 2010 election.
