Harry Reid stands up for the Cowboys…

08 Mar

…well, the poetry reading Cowboys, that is.

He wants your unborn children to pay for northern Nevada’s ‘Cowboy Poetry Festival’ and calls it ‘mean spirited’ for them not to.

So pay up fetuses. Or future fetuses.

We got us come Cowboyz. And they wax poetic.

As Majority Cowboy Reid put it…

“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.”

No mention of ‘Piss Christ’ and other notable works financed by the NEA. Heritage did a good job of dissecting this issue back in 1997 in a piece titled, ’10 Good Reasons to Eliminate Funding for the National Endowment for the Arts’.

For Harry, it’s no longer about the CHILDREN, it’s about the PoetrySlamminCowboyz.

I can think of at least 14 Trillion reasons why Harry Reid is utterly clueless as a keeper of the national treasure.

    I realize that the cowboy poetry festival is crucial to our national security and such, but geez, Harry, don’t you think we could try to go without it for a year and see whether or not the world ends? I betting it doesn’t.

    “utterly clueless” – you’re too kind.
