Nothing to see here, just Alaska’s lone Congressman head butting a camera.

It’s not every day you see a United States congressman go Zidane on a camera in the halls of the Capitol, but then again, the year is 2019. We ought to be thankful there were no Stone Cold Stunners involved. Granted, it is probably annoying as hell to have some guy following you around your place of work asking you the same question over and over. Also granted, you signed up to be an elected official, meaning a core component of your chosen profession—at least in theory—is to be constantly held accountable by the public, the press, and your peers. Of course, a big problem in our politics of the moment is that the president’s Republican allies refuse to exercise their constitutional powers to hold him accountable for abusing his authority and violating his oath of office.

That was the point at issue Thursday when Representative Don Young of Alaska was tailed through the hallways by activists from MoveOn, a lefty group with a simple question for him: “Do you think it’s OK for the president to pressure foreign governments to interfere in our elections?” Of course, being a Republican congressman in the Year of Our Lord 2019, Young was never going to offer up the simple—and seemingly obvious—answer: No, that’s not cool. Instead, he opted for the playful, but nonetheless weird, headbutt.

I have to say that in the realm of possibly violent things that Don Young might do to you this is actually fairly mild. 

Keep in mind that Don Young once twisted the arm of a page who tried to block him from entering a House chamber late, threatened to bite a colleague, and bragged about killing a man. 

So yeah, a head butt is probably just Young’s way of saying hi. 

And before any of you start with that whole “Why don’t you just vote him out?” crap keep in mind that I have been trying to do just that for the last forty goddamn years. 

He just won’t fucking go.

    ” identifies the purported whistleblower as a “registered Democrat” who worked on the National Security Council under the Obama administration and was held over in the early days of the Trump administration before he was “accused of working against Trump,” according to the report.

    As a Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, this CIA analyst is said to have worked closely with Vice President Joe Biden, who was Obama’s point man on Ukraine.

    “It is being reported that the whistleblower was Joe Biden’s point man on Ukraine,” Paul tweeted.
    “It is imperative the whistleblower is subpoenaed and asked under oath about Hunter Biden and corruption.”

    “Stop trying to endanger the life of the whistleblower, Senator,” replied national security attorney Bradley Moss.
    “This guy’s a leaker. He’s not a whistleblower,” Limbaugh said.

    “He’s 30-some-odd years old. I’ve got a picture. It looks like the pajama boy in the Obama ad that they ran back during, I think, the first term,”
    “This guy’s a leaker. He’s not a whistleblower,” The whistleblower’s attorneys released a statement on Thursday slamming the attempts to out the whistleblower.

    “The whistleblower’s attorneys have declined to confirm his identity and have condemned the attempts to expose him.”
    “Our client is legally entitled to anonymity. Disclosure of the name of any person who may be suspected to be the whistleblower places that individual and their family in great physical danger,” the statement said. “Any physical harm the individual and/or their family suffers as a result of disclosure means that the individuals and publications reporting such names will be personally liable for that harm. Such behavior is at the pinnacle of irresponsibility and is intentionally reckless.”

    It never fails that every state has a bonehead or two that represents them in Congress. I was surprised to learn that Alaska only has one Representative to the House – too bad he’s 86 years old and thinks butt-heading a camera is amusing instead of answering a simple question. Any up & comers up there in Alaska that could take Young’s place?

    OT? “New legislation calls for testing of rape kits within six months”
