My daughter sent me this one. Evidently adapted from a Clinton era joke.

AND THESE PEOPLE ARE RUNNING THE COUNTRY??

For those who have never traveled to the great West,
cattle guards are a bed of parallel steel rails placed in fence
openings on highways to prevent cattle from crossing.
For some reason the bovines will not step on the guards,
probably because they fear getting their feet caught
between the rails. This needed to be made clear in order
for everyone to appreciate the following story.

President Obama received a report that there were over
100,000 cattle guards in Colorado. Because Colorado
ranchers protested his proposed changes in grazing policies,
he ordered Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar to fire half
of the guards immediately.

Before Salazar could respond, and presumably straighten
him out, California's congresswoman Nancy Pelosi
intervened with a request that before any were fired, they
be given six months of retraining.
