Rep. Don Young of Alaska certainly has problems, but wolves aren’t one of them.

At a House Natural Resources Committee hearing this week, Young was complaining about how members of Congress were rallying together to help protect the gray wolf, when they don’t have to deal with them on a regular basis like he does.

“How many of you have got wolves in your district?” he asked. “None. None. Not one.”

And then, likely due to a full moon, he offered up this completely insane proposal.

“I’d like to introduce them to your district,” he said. “You wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore.”

A spokesperson for Young later clarified to the Washington Post that the “analogy was purposely hyperbolic to stress the point that these predators pose serious threats to wildlife management and their listing has damaging impacts to local communities.”

Alaska has “the largest remaining population of gray wolves in the United States,” according to Defenders of Wildlife.

Republican state Rep. Vito Barbieri appeared to be schooled on female genitalia Monday during a committee meeting about a bill that would restrict how women get abortion-inducing drugs.

In the clip he seems to be bit confused about how vaginas work. Fortunately, There’s a Swedish children’s song that might help him out.

Dr. Julie Madsen was in the middle of her testimony discussing colonoscopies via pill camera, when Barbieri posed his unusual question.

“Can this same procedure then be done in a pregnancy? Swallowing a camera and helping the doctor determine what the situation is?” he asked.

Madsen was very polite in her response, noting that pills don’t typically end up in one’s v@gina.

In follow-up interviews, however, Berbieri clarifies that he was just being “rhetorical’ and that he probably could have made that more clear. You think?

Nearly two years after a texting scandal nearly ended his congressional career, Anthony Weiner is in hot water again. Weiner admitted to sending a series of lewd messages and pictures to another woman as soon as last summer - some under the nickname "Carlos Danger" (as if the situation could be no less absurd). Old habits die hard, they say.
