Mama, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboy Poets

Sen. Harry Reid, a never-ending source of amusement.
β€œThe mean-spirited bill, HR 1 . . . eliminates the National Endowment of the Humanities, National Endowment of the Arts,” said Senator Reid. β€œThese 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.”
Republicans and conservatives are having a field day. But nobody's come up with a better line than Mary Katherine Hamm:
John Boehner's America is a land in which cowboys would be forced into back-alley poetry recitations.
Heh!
