He wanna be a macho man.

Utah AG Mark Shurtleff is feeling his oats these days on his Twitter feed.  Fresh off presiding over the firing squad execution of an inmate on death row, he’s got some swagger in his step.

So watch out, college football powers-that-be.

Hey BCS & NCAA – if you think the recent conference realignment will avoid an antitrust lawsuit – THINK AGAIN! http://bit.ly/cBrTdl #twackle

First off – and for the umpteenth thousandth time – the NCAA has nothing to do with the BCS.  You’d think someone in Shurtleff’s position would know that.

But secondly, that link is to a piece that’s almost a year old now.  If you’re gonna file the lawsuit, man, quit talking about it and just do it.   Or, in the immortal words of Tuco…

When you have to shoot…Shoot! Don’t talk.

    That video should be mandatory viewing for all first year law school students.

    Truly immortal words.

    You can’t spell “Shurtleff” without “STFU.”

    A great, but irrelevant, line from that movie:

    “You cut my share, . . . . might affect my aim.”

    “I just gave the go ahead to Corrections Director to proceed with Gardner’s execution. May God grant him the mercy he denied his victims.”

    what a sanctimonious piece of shit.

    Between tweets Mark,


    a narcisscist who never misses a sequential photo op, even if it means having to kill a guy, orchestrates an execution by osmosis even though its no longer done by a firing squad in Utah but by chemists…

    Of course, in terms of that necessary party legal mumbo-jumbo, Mark really doesn’t concern himself with that because that’s why the assistant AG’s draw a paycheck off of government money, of course.

    The one thing Mark does know is that with The Mormons, it’s all about teamwork, goosestepping and conquering the world. Busting The BCS along the way will be a cakewalk. Just ask Orrin and the gay in California.

      Uh, you do realize the guy had been on death row in Utah so long that he had a choice as to how he wanted to be executed?

      The firing squad was discontinued as the execution method in 2004; only condemned men prior to then have the option.

        No, I didn’t know this guy had been on death row that long and that he selected the express checkout option. Thinking way back when the death peanalty was reinstituted, I think Gary Gilmore picked the get shot option rather than the get fried option. Heck, they may have even had an third option for hanging.

    Yeah well, sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand.
