Sen. Howard Stephenson rates himself perfect

Sen. Howard Stephenson's organization, the Utah (Business-)Taxpayers Association, has rated Sen. Howard Stephenson perfect when it comes to (business-friendly) tax issues. According to the trib, Stephenson denied having input into the bills his organization considered in rating legislators, but the employee didn't get the memo, apparently: He said Stephenson did have input into both the bills chosen and the Association's position on them.

Stephenson apparently also decided not to consider other tax expenditures -- he was one of the legislators who went on a taxpayer-funded boondoggle to China last year.

In an unrelated story, Voice of Utah has rated itself as 100% Perfect on the subject of political blogging. "We are honored to receive this award from ourselves," said Voice of Utah spokesperson Voice of Utah. "Other than writing the posts, choosing the posts we wanted to include, and evaluating the posts, we had no involvement in this award."

Congratulations! I'm delighted that you've chosen such a worthy candidate for your award. And I'm thrilled to hear you won it! Maybe I should consider giving an award for "best blog on LDS perspective on politics." I'm sure I could be absolutely objective in determining that one. At least as much as Senator Stephenson.

Voice of Utah said...

LOL - thank you for your heartfelt congratulations. It does open up a lot of options, doesn't it?

I nominate myself for liberal cyber-jedi of the year. And since I am the one who decides who wins that award, I am truly honored to put this award on my resume.

Howard Stephensen is an embarrrassment to everyone in Utah except for the myopic nincompoops who continue to re-elect him continuously. In the words of my mentor Yoda, "how embarrassing."

I had just finished reading the same article this morning when I saw this. I was trying to think of something to say about it, but you took care of it better than anyone else can.

I award myself the Most Stellar Teacher Blog award and am accepting contributions towards a large cash reward for the recognition.

Tom said...

Laugh out loud funny. Congratulations on your award.

I've received two this year: greatest inactive Utah political blogger (I'm in strong contention for the regional award too), and best haircut.

I'm curious what you might think about the article Carl Wimmer & Friends: Superheroes? that was recently published online in response to Paul Rolly's column.

The writer of voiceofutah.blogspot.com has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: Bluetooth headsets look completely moronic I will be back.
