    Obama-mask clown gets lifetime Missouri fair ban. Just, or too harsh?[W:395]

    Obama-mask clown gets lifetime Missouri fair ban. Just, or too harsh? - CSMonitor.com

    Missouri State Fair officials have banned for life the rodeo clown who wore a President Obama mask while facing bulls at the event over the weekend.

    The clown in question engaged in an “unconscionable stunt” and will never perform at the Show Me state venue again, the Missouri State Fair Commission said Monday, in a statement. Fair officials are also reviewing their contract with the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, the contractor responsible for hiring and overseeing bull ring clowns.

    It is freedom of expression and humor. I don't understand the big deal.

    Isn't there a thread on this already? In any event, chose the wrong joke for the wrong crowd.

    The mask is nothing new.

    But the way we are treating satire is new. At least in the USA.

    Even clowns aren't allowed to be funny, or make fun of anyone who is deemed that important anymore. We have lost our sense of humor, and become overly sensitive to politicians, which makes no sense whatsoever. After all, politicians are essentially the biggest bunch of clowns in the country these days.
    "God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."

    Don't you know that anything short of ass kissing praise for The One is racist?
