Shurtleff's HCR Lawsuit Threats

Not much question why John Bircher Patrick Henry Caucus wingnut Carl Wimmer is so excited about the AG's lawsuit against the federal health care bill -- which no one has even seen yet -- talk.  That's tea party mana (and the less logical the better, as I understand their tactics).  But why would Shurtleff be so willing to spend taxpayer dollars on a pointless lawsuit that will do little more than position him where he wants to be positioned?  Well, it seems it's an exchange.  He's hoping to trade your money for more of their money.

Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff ~ $9,500
- Selecthealth: $5,000
- Pfizer PAC: $2,500
- Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Utah: $2,000
Shurtleff's credibility is beyond rescue.

It's this, or he got his law degree from the Nick Riviera Upstairs School of Law.  Wimmer has proven his naivety and lack of legal acumen again and again.  Hatch, Bishop just don't want to be tea bagged like Bennett.  Chaffetz hasn't met a vapid talking point he couldn't make love to on camera.  But Shurtleff?  He knows better.  He's just hoping you won't.
