We all remember Ryan Zinke. The once moderate state legislator turned right-wing nutjob LT governor candidate, turned SEAL TEAM SIX PATRIOT AND IF YOU QUESTION ME JOHN ADAMS I WILL STARE YOU DOWN Congressional candidate, turned Speaker of the House candidate, turned Interior Secretary.
Mr. Zinke has always enjoyed a good and simple turn of the phrase to describe whatever ideology he subscribes to in the latest election. My personal favorite was: “I don’t see things through a Red or Blue lens, I see things in a Red, White, and Blue lens” but his favorite was “I see myself as a Teddy Roosevelt Republican.”
And you know what? When I look in the mirror I see a 6’7” person who can dunk, but I am still not getting invited to the dunk contest this year…
My momma always said actions speak louder than words. And Mr. Zinke’s recent actions have spoken loud and clear.
Zinke is no TR Republican. Don’t just take my word for it. Teddy Roosevelt (the fourth, but who’s counting?) said so himself in a powerful take-down of Zinke.
