to jerk her chain
to push her buttons
to rattle her cage
to pull her strings
But more specifically, to 'get the goat' refers
to the stubbornnes with which your opponent
clings to a position; like a goat, will be nearly
impossible to move, once it decides to resist.
So, to confront in a certain way, is to know
in advance, what reaction will be forthcoming;
and so it is revealed, what reaction is desired,
as a means to provoke someone to look foolish.
