DOESN'T CLOWNING ITSELF REFER TO THE UR?:After Obama-mocking rodeo clown, Missouri fair requires 'sensitivity training' (Josh Levs, 8/15/13, CNN)
A state fair's response to the uproar over a rodeo clown's mockery of President Obama is creating an uproar of its own.Posted by Orrin Judd at August 20, 2013 3:19 PM
From now on, the Missouri State Fair won't allow any rodeo cowboys or clowns from the state's association to take part unless they all undergo "sensitivity training."
And that's just part of the fallout from the Saturday incident in which a clown wearing an Obama mask held a broom descending from his backside while a voice said, "Hey, I know I'm a clown. He's just running around acting like one. Doesn't know he is one."
