The orginal title said, "GOP brass visiting Utah -- Gov doesn't see S.L. as favorite for convention", but it was changed online to say, "Utah has better chance to host 2016 convention Herbert says."
Funny how a little pressure from the Governor can change a negative into a positive.
I wonder who will be driving the GOP BrASS around? We do have gay bars, but I'm not sure we have any transvestite bars, but if we do they should be excited about the possible extra couple thousand dollars they'll make tonight!
And, think of the new bars that might come to town if only they could get a liquor license. Maybe the legislature will change the laws to accommodate GOP leadership for their 2012 convention.
At least they know who to call if they want to find a hot tub for a round of naked -- you can look but don't touch -- solitaire.

The Deseret News learned of the allegations against Garn just before the GOP primary election in 2002. Garn sat down and spoke about the incident with Deseret News reporters and editors.
At the time, Garn and now-U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, were in a tight primary race seeking the Republican nomination for the 1st Congressional District and Garn was the Utah House majority leader, a position he has, again, achieved.
Deseret News editors decided not to run a story about the indiscretion at that time, since the GOP primary was only weeks away and the incident had occurred years before.
The editors decided to wait to see if Garn advanced in the primary before deciding whether to publish a story.
Because Garn lost that primary, and therefore was also retiring from the Utah House, the newspaper never published a story.
The D News owes the public an apology. Report the news and let your readers decide how to feel about it.
This is disgusting!

You go after a higher paying job.
You may have worn out your welcome at your last job.
But so what,
you've got friends,
and you might be able to help them get something they want.
They twist a few arms.
They raise you money.
The last Republican candidate approximately spent 10,000.00 bucks on their statewide campaign.
But no worries.
For your bosses,
And they want to control everything.
They do have a little clout,
but even their influence,
can't win you the nomination at convention.
Because too many delegates understood the truth.
And your opponent,
"Doesn't matter!", you tell yourself,
because you've got buddies,
and they have money.
You become so cocky you offer your opponent a job if he drops out.
But he won't,
because he has integrity,
and he too knows,
He turns you in.
But not to worry, the current attorney general is the one of your buddies, and he's helping you finance your campaign.
And the lieutenant governor won't do diddly,
because he's one of your buddies,
and to hell with ethics when it's between friends.
And if foe some God awful reason,
you do get elected,
and you don't know what to do.
you have no worries,
because your buddies will fix it,
and tell you what to do.
