Republican Wanker of the Week


I’m thinking Don Young, R-AK, has it in the bag. At least he meant no disrespect.

How do you compete with that if it’s only Tuesday? For your B-side, on Thursday you advise people to drink alone as it reduces domestic violence:

Young, in office since 1973, has made the news over the years for malapropisms and worse. On Thursday, he addressed a Choose Respect noon rally at the Capitol in Juneau and appeared to advise people to drink alone to reduce the risk of domestic violence.

“Watch the alcohol and the drugs,” Young said from a podium on the Capitol steps. “You look at the relationship between violence against the loved ones you love, (it) is usually related to either one of those. And I’m going to suggest for those that may be drinking together — Stop it! If you want to drink by yourself, you may do it. But when you drink together, the possibility of harm becomes greater every day.”
