Mike Huckabee With the clowns in Washington on vacation, the political news is being made by rodeo clown…You must’ve heard about the Missouri State Fair rodeo clown who did a comedy routine in an Obama mask. Democrats went wilder than the bull. The clown has been banned for life, the NAACP wants the Justice Department and the Secret Service to investigate him, and all rodeo clowns now have to undergo sensitivity training. Great, I’ve always wanted to see rodeo clowns do wry monologues about their relationships with the bull. Look, I agree, showing disrespect to the President is offensive. And there is no excuse for racism, even if it’s disguised as humor. I’d just take the outrage a little more seriously if the same people complaining had ever once objected to President Bush being portrayed on stage and screen as a chimp, or Condoleezza Rice being depicted by a prominent editorial cartoonist as a slave mammy. Somehow, when I hear all this uproar over a rodeo clown, I get the feeling the cowboys aren’t the only ones who are throwing the bull a little bit.
