Rumsfield names horse “Montana”

23 Oct

Rumsfield is a horse's ass, but his horse has a good name:

ULAN BATOR, Mongolia, Oct. 22  – Mongolia has 131 soldiers in Iraq, and on Saturday it received an official American statement of gratitude from Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld.

Mr. Rumsfeld came to Ulan Bator to deliver that message personally, and he was given  a horse.

In dazzling sunlight on the grounds of the Mongolian Defense Ministry, Mr. Rumsfeld took the reins of the calm gelding and said, "I am proud to be the owner of that proud animal." He immediately announced that  he would name the horse Montana, because the dusty plains and mountains that ring the Mongolian capital reminded him of that Rocky Mountain state.
