Why glorify Lee?
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The Tribune's April 10 presentation of Sen. Mike Lee as a major threat to President Barack Obama with a splashy, front-page headline, "Gun laws: Obama vs. Lee," is surely more than Lee deserves. As a small man, frantic to be noticed, Lee certainly doesn't constitute a genuine threat to Obama in this or any other way.

Lee is just that cranky guy from Utah who opposes everything. This glorification of his influence is inappropriate.
