Winners! Don Young Caption Contest

Your meme magic has astounded even us, Mudflatters!

When presented with this picture of longest sitting member of the House of Representatives Don Young, with a cigar, a shotgun, and rubber panda guy, you stepped up.

There are but seven days until the election, and to help you keep your sanity and sense of humor, we will dole out two a day, for a total of the 14 best meme ideas. Think of it like a brief, and extremely insane political advent calendar, only instead of a chocolate treat you get Don Young.

Ok, bad analogy.

Here are today’s two memes. Check back tomorrow for more!

    I don’t get the joke. I understand the usefulness of ridicule. But that is not enough to depose the power of a sole congressman whose idea of public service is enriching himself at the expense of the public, nearly half of which do not condone him.Yet he remains the face of Alaska in Congress. A juvenile deliquent wearing a pinwheel beany cap and professing he is rational.

    There is something deeply wrong about that scenario. Idiots should not hold elected positions that carry with them a fair amount of power. It makes one wonder if there is not some fundamental flaw in the whole concept of representative democracy. There may well be. Evidence for it that is available. The evidence for example of the effectiveness of propaganda. Selliing lies is a very big business with a very long history and an entrenched and massively effective technology. And lies are cheap, you just make them up, it requires little if any effort. Proving they have no merit demands efforts on the part of the honest that can be both expensive and frustrating. Just look at some of the issues that confront us. It is so easy and simple to make the claim, global warming caused by human activity (and that is a nuanced claim) is a vast hoax.

    The supposed motive behind such a hoax is obtaining unlimited funding to keep perpetuating it. Why not invest energy and research in growing pineapples in Alaska instead? I am sure that would be more lucrative.

    I am sorry to have wandered so far off topic, but Mr. Dung is not a joke. He is an example of corruption and greed, he is an agent for plutocrats and oligarchs but he has apparently perfected the smooth and slippery sales manner that fools just enough people into giving him their endorsement. Garrett Hardin wrote about the Tragedy of the Commons. I am thinking in terms of the tragedy of the commoners, the vox populi. It seems as though they have ceded their responsibility for cogent rational choice in favor of riding along on the band wagon. Accrediting themselves as reasonable because they adopt the popular.

    I am not optimistic.

      Once in a while, Krubozumo, for the sake of sanity, you just have to take a break and have a laugh, just like Jeanne said above.

    Pretty funny, I guess..if he weren’t Alaska’s actual Representative in Congress.

    Would like to see some more of that smiling face of Forrest Dunbar!..for more effective and ethical representation for Alaska.
