Feeling sorry for the clowns

August 23, 2013 

I see that Missouri State Fair executives suspended the two clowns for life for wearing a mask of President Obama at the rodeo. I guess free speech is out of the question.

If this is true, I am shocked. How can we have a clown in the White House acting like a president and he gets to keep his job? Where is the justice?

I'll say it over and over: Obama couldn't lead a thirsty horse to water.

I feel sorry for the clowns because no one needs to lose a job for a Halloween-type prank. Where is our ACLU? Guess they got canned, too.
