Democrat hysteria and hyperbole over modest budget cuts reaches new highs. Or lows:
“The mean-spirited bill, H.R. 1 … eliminates the National Endowment of the Humanities, National Endowment of the Arts,” said Reid. “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.”
Who knew that these benighted cowboy poetry afficianados were not only dependent on Washington for their rodeo clown fix, but their very existence?

Yippi-ki-o, yipp-ki-a, cowboy poets on the dole.
