Cowboy Poets Society

Oh sure, we’re all having a good laugh at Harry Reid’s expense

“The mean-spirited bill, H.R. 1, eliminates National Public Broadcasting,” said Reid in a floor speech. “It eliminates the National Endowment of the Humanities, National Endowment of the Arts. These programs create jobs. The National Endowment of the Humanities is the reason we have in northern Nevada every January a cowboy poetry festival. Had that program not been around, the tens of thousands of people who come there every year would not exist.

“The tens of thousand people who come there every year would not exist.” Yeah, yeah, yuck it up, people.

Well let me tell you mean-spirited people something: Harry’s right.

Help me Slim Whitman.

You’re my only hope.

    Oi. The abject stupidity in this country is making my head hurt.

    If the Cowboy Poetry Festival is so popular, why not charge $5 or whatever for everyone walking in the door, and have it pay for itself???

    Yeah, yeah, I know: earmarks.

    Paying for itself???? In Leftieville, you would receive an Atomic Wedgie for such outlandish thinking.

    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue.
    You want me to pay?
    Up yours, Buckaroo!

    Syd – the scary thing is, that poem is pretty much a political palindrome… it works both from Left to Right, and from Right to Left.

    As far as people not existing without the January Cowboy Poetry Slam – does Harry Reid really know what’s going on in all of those motel rooms?

    I wonder if Harry Reid even knows how to put his owned damned pants on.
