    The comment was only half serious, but those who ,got upset after it became public would also be the audience. I think it was an overreaction btw.

    You have your chambers mixed up. The house has 435. The Senate has 100.

    So why has this turned into such a big deal?

    In my opinion the answer is that it's because Obama has become so impotent, which leads his supporters to make responses to criticisms that are exaggerated and ... well ... absurd. Even light hearted jabs like this rodeo clown thing are intolerable to these people because they know how weak their position has become.
    I wonder how many people have seen the video from the point where the "Obama dummy" is set out to the point where the bull actually comes out? If you haven't you really don't know the full story here. If you have and you're standing behind the "freedom of speech/it was a joke" defense, then you're really not being honest about what actually took place.

    This was not a joke, folks. This was someone who clearly is anti-Obama who thought he was being funny by setting what appeared to be a dummy-figure wearing an Obama mask propped up by a broomstick (conveniently positioned right up his) in the rodeo arena. The announcer introduces the dummy as "Obama" and goes on to ask the crowd if they'd like to see Obama get run down by the bull. What's funny about that?

    It would've been "funny" if the rodeo clown wearing the mask had suddenly come to life and started running around the arena flipping his ears because as we all know and can agree on President Obama does have some big ears. He's even made fun of them himself. It would've been "funny" if the Obama rodeo clown wore an "ObamaCare bullseye" on his butt while teasing the bull to chase him. That atleast would have been in keeping with what rodeo clowns do. But instead what you had was the announcer encouraging the crowd to want to see the figurative President Obama hurt by being run down by a bull.

    That's not funny. It's not even close to exercising free speech. This act was in very poor taste and it doesn't take a Liberal or Conservative/Democrat or Republican to see that. In any case, for those who haven't seen an extended version of the video, you can view it from this website.

    Does that look like 435 members to you?

    I count 100.

    Can we get beyond simple civics?
    Okay, so, in your world, what chamber do representatives sit in? After all, you just said that the House has 100 members and that each state has 2 senators. So apparently you (incorrectly) think that the House is made of Senators.

    So where do the 435 Representatives sit? The Senate? ><

    Senators sit in the House and Representatives sit in the Senate?

    It's hilarious how you proceeded to insult someone on their (alleged) lack of knowledge on civics.

    You've been here over a year. You should know the answer to this.

    Wait, that was rhetorical?
