Last week, Matt Arnold of ClearTheBenchColorado.org ran afoul of a legislator during his testimony protesting the removal of tax exemptions for bull semen, among other things. Representative Joel Judd all but tossed him out of a committee hearing.
But Arnold is fighting back -- with a little help from his dog, Nola, who he adopted while taking part in emergency operations after Hurricane Katrina (Nola is short for "New Orleans, Louisiana"). In testifying against what he describes as a plan to tax doggy bags at restaurants, he passed out fliers with a photo of his pooch labeled "WHY IS THIS DOGGY SO SAD?" The answer: The tax will "cut off her supply of yummy take-home leftovers."
Look below to see the flier, as well as a clip of Arnold's testimony. Frankly, the latter isn't as funny as the former -- but that's probably because Nola wasn't on hand to help out.
