Why the Republicans are going to get stomped.

From the Club For Growth:

Dumbest Quote of the Year!

Asked whether Ted Stevens can still win, Alaska Rep. Don Young told the Anchorage Daily News [emphasis mine]:

"I think he can win. He's the best thing for that, for the Senate. Alaskans know this.

"[...]I think that's going to be, you know, a matter of opinion. I can remember Richard Nixon, you know, his years of service, what he's done, and everybody were ridiculing him and he ended up being the greatest president in the history of our century.

Arrogance has blinded Young so badly, he thinks it's okay for a convicted felon to serve in the Senate. And his Nixon quote? Astounding.

I lifted this in its entirety because the writer is so right. This is precisely why there is a danger of a one party Congress for the next 4 years and why the Republicans deserve to be wiped out this year. I say this as someone who usually votes Republican. Hat tip Instapundit.

"....greatest president in the history of our century."

What does that mean?????????

Alaska has very entertaining politicians.

"the history of our century" definitely is a unique phrasing. I won't touch on the rest of the quote since the speaker is obviously deranged and/or unaware of every other president.

And I would imagine that the amusing characters to be found in Alaska are not limited to politicians.
