Here's Glenn's ridiculous defense of racist rodeo clowns:
Here's Lawrence O'Donnell on Beck, and the guy who originally posted the rodeo clown photo, always a good time:
And conservative pundit Peggy Noonen:
Peggy Noonan offered a "classy" suggestion to President Barack Obama on Tuesday: go to bat for that rodeo clown in Missouri.Sure, Obama should acknowledge this circus sideshow clown act. Right.
Let me suggest a classy Obama move that might go over well. From his Vineyard vacation spot he should have the press office issue a release saying his reaction to finding out a rodeo clown was rudely spoofing him, was, “So what?” Say he loves free speech, including inevitably derision directed at him, and he does not wish for the Missouri state fair to fire the guy, and hopes those politicians (unctuously, excessively, embarrassingly) damning the clown and the crowd would pipe down and relax. This would be graceful and nice, wouldn't it? He would never do it. He gives every sign of being a person who really believes he shouldn't be made fun of, and if he is it’s probably racially toned, because why else would you make fun of him?
