    Rodeo Clown Brouhaha Justified?

    A rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask at the rodeo has resulted in his suspension from the rodeo "for life" and all the clowns have to undergo sensitivity training, among other things. Is all this justified?

    No, it's incredibly stupid. Clowns are supposed to be unfunny while attempting to be funny. If they weren't, they wouldn't be clowns.

    I thought clowns were also supposed to be murderous things?

    No. Unless there is a previous rule that states that you cannot mock a sitting president, the ban, sensitivity training, etc. is BS.

    Nothing was racist in this and some people REALLY need to loosen up. I don't find what he did funny, but I don't think ANY of this is necessary either.

    No. Much ado over nothing. Free country; free speech and all that.

    No, not on that act alone.

    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.

    No...suspension for life is dumb and an overreaction.

    Banning him forever is a big overreaction. If they don't want political clowns, that's understandable.
