Ryan Zinke is an illeist
Last Friday, I read an article in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle entitled, "GOP House candidate Zinke says bin Laden email misunderstood."
Asked how the death of bin Laden was relevant to his congressional campaign, Zinke said, “The connection is Ryan Zinke did two tours with our nation's finest.”He didn't answer the question but I need to move on to the more important part of that sentence. Let's all just take a second to absorb the fact that Ryan Zinke, in a conversation with a reporter, spoke about himself in the third person. But wait, you say. Alexis, don't be so hard on the guy, maybe it was an accident. Don't you find yourself occasionally slipping into the third person when you're talking about yourself? See how absurd that sounds? It wasn't a slip and regardless, I know for a fact that this was not a one time occurrence. Zinke is quite famous among the Helena political crowd for speaking in the third person.
