Harry Reid; “Don’t eliminate The National Endowment of the Humanities: thousands could perish!”

I caught Mark Levin talking about this today, and I laughed so hard I about wrecked my truck.

Reid pulled the Republicans are “mean-spirited” card when he complained about the bill the GOP has cooking [My links and emphasis];

“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.”

Apparently, poetry saves lives in Nevada.

Video h/t Doug Powers, who reminds us of Harry Reid’s “Wild West” roots;

Harry Reid’s love of all-things-cowboy dates back to his great great grandfather Bucky Ried, who, as legend has it, once taxed a man to death just for snorin’ too loud.

  1. It’s fun to snark the old fool who’s the Senate Majority leader; Lord knows their side had great fun whenever GWB tripped over his own words.

    But honestly, are there really any people who would miss the stupid cowboy poetry festival if it went away? And if there are, could they not pass the (cowboy) hat and fund it (horrors!) privately? Sheesh! Do my tax dollars have to pay for everything? Seriously?

  2. There’s a lot more breeding at those Cowboy Poetry Festivals than I realized. I suppose it’s the groupies. What cowboy poet could resist some sweet young thing throwing herself at him?

    Subsidize it, after all, it’s for the chillen.
