What with the damn rodeo clown getting fired, banned, and the whole association subject to sensitivity training for the offense of clowning around at the expense of the President.

What with the long history of rodeo and other clowns mocking presidents at public events (even down to the broom up the rear end), as well as protesters and others doing the same:

The big white gate flew open. The bull came out bucking. The rider flopped from side to side and the bullfighters held back, letting the bull make his moves until the rider dropped off. Licciardello crouched in a heavily padded barrel, a human target should the bull decide to charge. Hawkins waited near the barrel, holding his big inner tube. A dummy with a George [H.W.?] Bush mask stood beside the clown, propped up by a broomstick.

Is this all cute or creepy? Creepy.
