Hands down, the quote of the day, perhaps the best quote so far of 2013, comes courtesy of US Representative Ted Yoho.

“Intimidating is going up to a growling Rottweiler and having to squeeze his anal glands, or going up to a stallion that weighs 1,200 pounds and telling him you’re going to take his testicles off. That’s intimidating. I think I can handle Congress.”

Yoho was quoted by National Journal, explaining that his days as a large animal veterinarian prepared him for his new job in politics.
