    If you don't even know the composition of our congress then why should I take your opinion seriously? - or anyone that is just as ignorant as you are for that matter?

    As to your post, I have absolutely no reason why you included the picture of the GWB head from Game of Thrones which is an entirely seperate situation.

    In one case a person intentionally put on an Obama mask as part of his "clown" costume with the direct intent of making it perfectly clear he was referencing Obama to the point of having the PA announcer ask the crowd if they wanted to see Obama "ran down by a Bull".

    In the other case crew members on a TV set grabbed a bunch of dummy heads that were on hand, threw wigs on them, to use them as props and purposefully turned the face away along with giving it long hair to not make it clear that it was a model of the former President and was publicly stated that it was done for absolutely no political reason and in no way was highlighted by those doing it.

    Yes, TOTALLY similar enough to warrant using that picture alone to demonstrate your thoughts on this issue.

    Apparently they did a spoof of George HW Bush at a rodeo and totally destroyed the mask, and no one got banned and no outrage.

    I'd like to see most of them banned for life.

    First rule of performance: know your audience.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    And that's rather low class and rather disrespectful to the office imho as well; but similarly I'd feel the rodeo in question had the right to take whatever action they did or didn't want to take.

    Still doesn't change the fact that the reference to Bush's head in game of thrones was head scratchingly irrelevant.

    By all accounts, the "audience" of the Obama incident had no issue with the performance. It was after it became more public knowledge that others began having the problem.
