Simply great timing...

Just when the House has voted to prevent horses from being slaughtered for meat - even after a stern admonition from the administration (remember them?) - the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration ends in scandal.

Imagine calling off the Super Bowl because most of the players tested
positive for drug use, and you have an idea of how a crowd of 26,000 horse
lovers reacted Saturday night when the Tennessee Walking Horse National
Celebration ended without a grand champion, after USDA inspectors disqualified
six of 10 finalists. Reason: the inspectors said the horses had been sored —
abused — to exaggerate their already exaggerated high-stepping foreleg

So, Sec. Johanns, how was your day?

[Reason # 21 why not to be in the Cabinet.]
