Sen. Hatch, on libertarians, in a recent NPR interview:
“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.”
Given how offended I am by his big-government establishment conservatism, glad to see the feeling is mutual.
