Lulz: Egg-Shaped Progressive Infiltrator Unit Plots Primary Against Republicans Orin Hatch or Jason Chaffetz

I'm not a fan of Hatch at all, and I have problems with Chaffetz, but the idea that Egg McMuffin is going to do anything against them is... a fundraiser's dream, and I'm pretty sure it's noting but that.

Fundraisers gotta fundraise. And they have to have some product to sell the gullible.

Egg McMuffin is apparently that product.

Who arrrre the Political Wizards who came up with this genius product?

Evan McMullin, a 2016 independent candidate for president, said Friday that he is considering launching a primary bid against either Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, or Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, in 2018.

McMullin said during an "ask me anything" discussion on Reddit that it is is "likely" that he will run for office again and that it might be in 2018 against one of the two Utah politicians.

He does allow that maybe Utah Republicans actually like Hatch and Chaffetz, and that could factor into his decision-making.

But I gotta think another factor is present too: What his his job now, exactly? I looked on Wikipedia and I can't find any current employment, just his former jobs.

Update: Ah, per Wikipedia, his current occupation seems to be...

On January 25, 2017, McMullin announced the formation of Stand Up Republic, a nonpartisan watchdog organization meant to ensure that the Trump administration upholds democracy and tells the truth

So his job is fronting a fundraising group.

If his job is now being the (very silly) front man for some former Republican operatives who have need of selling product, my guess is that money needs outweigh any kind abstract questions about whether Republicans actually want a challenger to either of these two guys.

I'd like to see Hatch primaried, but not by Egg.

Hatch is getting up there in years. A real Republican should at least begin exploring a challenge just in case Hatch decides he's too old for this stuff any more. I would hate to see Egg McMuffin as the only guy who filed papers to mount a run.
