America’s Dumbest Congressmen

`The scene: Fairbanks, Alaska, 1994. Congressman Don Young, already in office for 20 years, is on the stump preaching the virtues of Newt Gingrich’s Republican revolution to a group of high school students. Just look at all the wasteful things the federal government does with taxpayers’ money, he tells them.

“Buttfucking,” replies the great scourge of obscenity and instructor of youth.’
