Seattle Post-Intelligencer columnist Joe Connelly offers a Don Young (R-AK) quiz for readers (what better way to celebrate Thanksgiving?). A sample:
7) A man renowned for his temper, Young has during 35 years in Congress:
a) Waved an oosik, the penis bone of a walrus, at the first woman head of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at a hearing.
b) Loudly argued, during a hearing on trapping and animal cruelty, that leg-hold traps are neither painful nor dangerous — and put his hand into a trap.
c) Reacted to the effort by a Republican colleague to cut one of his pet projects by yelling across the House floor: “There’s always another day when those who fight will be killed, too, and I am very good at that.”
d) All of the above.
