Leo Wasillie scores an unprecedented top finish number three, although it could be argued that some of the credit belongs to Rep. Young for being so inspiring.
Who can resist the hubris of a guy like Don, who does things like declare his opinion on global warming is as sound as any scientist's, then later plain makes stuff up on the topic. Scientists that do likewise get pounced on by their colleagues and suffer shame. Alaska Politicians that do it get reelected.
Leo's caption fit because it accepts Representative Young's proclomation that what he asserts as reality is what matters, not the boring real world that the rest of us live in. He can lecture a frog on thermodynamics as he sits in a kettle unfazed by actual heat.
And then it hits you, maybe we ARE all living in a universe where reality is fabricated somewhere in Don Youngs's frontal brain lobe. It would explain all his reelections. Political science has nothing on political metaphysics.
We'll have another chance to explore and deplore Alaska politics next week on Tuesday when the next round starts.
