MSNBC's Chris Hayes had a fine exposè … with incriminating footage of the GOP Brute from A-las-ka Don Young. It's not pretty, the Regressive Right Caveman tendencies, particularly when they are played out live and sensibly recording of the video.
Rep. Don Young has apologized for grabbing the arm of a congressional staffer at the Capitol.
His response came after a photo and video surfaced of the Alaska Republican forcefully holding the arm of a congressional aide on Thursday. Roll Call reported that the staffer tried to prevent the congressman from entering a GOP meeting through a side door. After holding his arm for several moments, Young let go and entered the meeting.
I wonder if the balcony was too far away to threaten the staffer with?
Chris Hayes went All In on Congressman Caveman Young.
The following public comment summed it up.
Rusty Swan of The National Judicial College, a native A-las-kan. Guess it was a very good thing that Young wasn't open-carrying … no doubt his pal Sarah Palin has encouraged firearms for those sticky Congressional
As a fellow Alaskan, I totally agree. He, like Ted Stevens in his final years, has become an embarrassment to the state.
By 8:00 p.m. EST, Chris Hayes went All In on the shameful acts of Rep. Young just twelve hours after Morning Schmoe et al framed the criticism …
The majority of Regressive Right A-las-ka had better enroll in etiquette studies. That would be a killer reality show for the SyFy Channel.
A comment on the story at a forum sums it up with panache:
Rep. Don Young (R) Alaska twists staffers arm causing pain on purpose caught on video
It is apparent to me he was trying to make a painful point to the young staffer who was just simply doing his job. They said the Representative didn't like anyone telling him what he could and couldn't do. He tried to play it off like he got caught off guard by some unknown person. The video is very telling.
It is representatives like these that we have in our ranks that think nothing of hurting someone physically because they feel that person is "beneath" them.

It's barely a year since Young of A-las-ka used his tongue as a weapon, and called Latino immigrants 'wetbacks'
Lovely man. In this post Tea Party political schism Don Young's are worth a dime a peck.
