Finally an occupation has been discovered for which Obama might be qualified (although I doubt he would last long without getting gored) — rodeo clown:
An incident at the Missouri State Fair on Saturday night is getting national attention via social media.
A clown wearing a mask of President Obama came out in the arena during the bull riding event. The announcer then asked the crowd if it wanted to see Obama “run down by a bull.”
Kind of like the way Obama has been running down the country.
An onlooker posted their account of the event on social media, which was then picked up by the Daily Kos and the Kansas City Star.
“The crowd went wild. He asked it again and again, louder each time,” the onlooker’s account of the event said.
Why should the bull never have the crowd on its side?
Naturally, Democrats sanctimoniously exploited the incident:
Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill released a statement on Sunday evening, saying:
“If what’s being reported is true, then it’s shameful and it’s unacceptable. The State Fair is funded by taxpayer dollars, and is supposed to be a place where we can all bring our families and celebrate the state that we love. But the young Missourians who witnessed this stunt learned exactly the wrong lesson about political discourse — that somehow it’s ever acceptable to, in a public event, disrespect, taunt, and joke about harming the President of our great nation. Missouri is better than this, and I expect someone to be held accountable.”
Yet again we see how government money compromises everything it touches. Missouri State Fair officials cringed and puled,
“The performance by one of the rodeo clowns at Saturday’s event was inappropriate and disrespectful, and does not reflect the opinions or standards of the Missouri State Fair. We strive to be a family friendly event and regret that Saturday’s rodeo badly missed that mark.”
But the delight of the crowd will never be erased.
