Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) devoted a speech Friday to discuss just how little he thinks of Democrats and liberals.

According to the Huffington Post, the Utah Republican told attendees at the Federalist Society’s annual conference that he looks forward to giving Democrats “a taste of their own medicine” after the GOP takes back the White House in 2016.

Hatch said he’d prefer to have the Senate keep the new filibuster rules that were passed by Democrats last year to “teach those blunderheads that they made a big mistake.”

And Hatch showed that jokes about progressives will always do well at a conservative legal confab.

“I get a big kick out of them using the word ‘progressive,'” Hatch said, as quoted by HuffPost. “My gosh, they’re just straight old dumb-ass liberals anyway.”
