I received a very interesting email from Don Young, the house rep for AK.

Note that I have never received anything from him before.

In this email, there’s the usual pablum of “as a representative....” blah, blah, blah.

And then there is a poll. In this poll I am given the choice of 6 items I think the house should be focused on right now. The usual cast of “infrastructure improvements and maintenance”, “tax reform”, conveniently however, there was no mention of impeachment.

There was however an “other” box.

I’m pretty jaded politically, and I don’t usually participate in this crap, it gets my email on the radar. But this time I thought “why not”?

And you can bet I clicked “other”.

Submitted the survey and guess what? 33% of the other folks picked “other”, and the second highest in the poll was “infrastructure improvements and maintenance”, at a smooth 21%.

Think about that for a moment. Savor it.

Why would I receive an unsolicited email this week from my house representative? Why a poll worded in such a way to provide deniability?

I’m actually beginning to wonder if the winds might be changing ever so slightly.

Amongst their inability to properly use words......

Did Doug Collins just twice mangle the word “denigrate”?

On edit. I think he wanted to use it, but veered into “degenerate”.

Please, please, please SNL let Kate McKinnon play Stephen Castor on this weeks cold open.

Just the idea of what she would do with his myopic lean into every exhibit has me in a pre-laugh paroxysm.

Just watched Ted Cruz publicly fellate trump on Meet the Press.

After the way he treated him in the primary, after the claims he made about his wife, and the threats he made. Chuck Todd even brought some of the worst ones up!

Ted just kept on sucking.

What? What? What?

Please, God, before I go, I have to know.


What would make a guy do that? Flip so obviously and so honorlessly to laud a guy who took it to his wife?

*as an aside, I’m not near death. This is just really bugging me man.
