When subsidies attack
This afternoon, Reps. Anthony Weiner and Jason Chaffetz held a news conference that included two live mohair goats in order to protest the absurd subsidies that Congress sends to the mohair goat industry every year. But don't think the goats just stood there and took the abuse. The Hill reports:
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) was injured by a mohair goat on Thursday during a press conference to highlight subsidies to the mohair industry. The goat nicked Weiner's right hand with one of its pointy, foot-long horns, hard enough to draw blood. [...]
At press time, it was unclear which goat, Lancelot or Arthur, was to blame for Weiner's injury.
