Dick Armey, Everyman

Buried deep in the Washington Post’s saga of how Republican Dede Scozzafava came to endorse Democrat Bill Owens in New York’s 23rd, an extremely peculiar image:

“There is a great song called ‘Coca Cola Cowboy’ and I believe that’s what we have here. She was a Republican as long as it enhanced her electability,” said Armey, reached while petting a goat at his Texas ranch. “My guess is she made a deal with Chuck Schumer or the White House that will eventually show itself to us.”

Petting a goat? Did he tell the reporter that? “I’m petting a goat on my ranch right now, but sure, I’ll chat.”
