*****************************************



Alaska Congressman Don Young got into a heated discussion with Rice University professor Doug Brinkley at a hearing on Friday.

Young addressed Brinkley as "Dr. Rice" and called his testimony "garbage." Brinkley replied, "Dr. Brinkley. Rice is a university. I know you went to Yuba College and you couldn't graduate."

"I'll call you anything I want to call you when you sit in that chair. You just be quiet," Young quipped.

"You don't own me," Brinkley shot back. "I pay your salary."

2. Young is an asshole. He' a bully, and a narcissistic, asshole. Mr. Brinkley
DOES pay Young's damn salary. And for that, Young could show a little goddamned respect.
