Hypocrisy: Mike Lee and the Constitutional Defenders! (TM) Silent on HB150

Anti-Fed "message lands bill" HB143 , rallying the tea part troops against those "evil Feds" (who are paying our bills right now)? 

Campaign fodder and proof of one's commitment to the Constitution.

Shurtleff's "We don't need no stinkin' warrants!" HB150, a blatant violation of the 4th amendment? 

Complete and total silence.  What Constitution?

All candidates running on the "defend the Constitution" meme in the Senate race for Bennett's seat proved today that their invocation of the Constitution applies only when politically convenient to do so.  So with Carl Wimmer and his Patrik Henree Kawkiss, and all other tea partiers state wide. 

Repeated advertisement of their excitement over the lands bill, the gun bill, the opt-out of health care bill -- you name it, contrasted with their complete absence of opinion on HB150, proves they are only interested in "defending the Constitution" when it scores political points.  So much for a little integrity of message, huh? 

I am sure Mike Lee was just too busy defending the Constitution somewhere else to notice.

Incidentally, HB150 saw no movement in Education Committee this morning (yeah, Education Committee), and now either has moved on to the UT state senate for a vote, or will be moving on soon -- depending on who you're reading -- as that decision is in the hands of Margaret "Screw the ATF!" Dayton, another Great Defender of the Constitution.
