Heather Is he making fun of Orrin Hatch? Orrin referred to himself as a "giant in the senate" during his presidential run. Wonder if Al Franken knew that and is being a bit snarky to old Orrin....

Good question - i dont remember him mentioning OH at all during the book...but i guess it could be an attempt at snark.
