Mockery Opportunities Abound: “John Boehner’s America is a land in which cowboys would be forced into back-alley poetry recitations.”

In western railroad halts where the Last Chance Saloon shuttered in 1893,
dusty one-horse towns are now glittering one-grant towns, where elderly hoochie-koochie dancers are being retrained to lead rewarding lives as inspectors from the Agency of Cowboy-Poetry Festival Handicapped-Access Compliance. Used to be a man could ride the range for days on end under lonesome skies with nuthin’ on the horizon ’cept a withered mesquite and a clump of sagebrush, but now all you see are clouds of dust and all you hear’s the mighty roar of thundering hooves as every gnarled ol’ wrangler in the territory races for the last hitching post outside creative-writing class. -- Cowboy Subsidies - Mark Steyn - National Review Online
