A political cartoon from Paul Seccomb
Outside Magazine wrote a profile on our former Congressman chronicling his journey from moderate Whitefish legislator to looney-tune Interior Secretary. But it ends with a conclusion this blog has held for a long time: Regardless of Zinke’s ever-changing policy positions, he’s been a fraud all along.
From the profile:
As Zinke and I casted over the ice-cold water, I noticed something funny about his setup. He kept struggling to strip line out of the bottom of the reel. For a while, I thought he was simply having trouble concentrating on our conversation while casting. No, there was something wrong, and when I asked him to stand for a portrait, I finally saw what the problem was. He had rigged his reel backward, so that the line was coming out of the top of the reel. Every so often when he went to strip line out, he would grasp air where the line should’ve been.
Seems like an inconsequential thing, but in Montana, it’s everything.
