Politics as Usual
The senior senator from Alaska, the longest serving Republican in history has just been indicted. What I really wanted to talk about, though, was our only House member, Don Young. He's a buffoon and a bully, and for years he's been a joke we've played on the rest of the country. Now there's an ad running in which he talks about increasing the federal gas tax. He's coherent, and lays out reasons why this would be in the public interest. This ad is being run by the people opposing Don Young, who has already disavowed the only thing he's ever said that made sense.
