How about the novel published right before the 2004 election in which the protagonist spent the whole book describing how to assassinate GWB and get away with it?...

I know it doesn't compare to being the target of a drone bull, but still...

I wouldn't worry about all the public taking it hook, line and sinker. You can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all the people all of the time. Cliche, but true.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the shite has hit the fan...

http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/m...f7f55e327.html

JEFERSON CITY** • *Missouri State*Fair officials have barred a rodeo clown who wore a Barack Obama mask and mocked the president from ever performing at the fair again.

Neither the fair nor the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, which sponsored the event, have revealed the name of the clown.

But the fair, in a release today, said the Rodeo Cowboy Association "must hold all those responsible for this offensive stunt accountable." The fair also says if the association is to ever sponsor a rodeo again, it must first show proof that "all officials and subcontractors...have successfully participated in sensitivity training."

For its part, the association also condemned the incident.

“The sport of rodeo is not meant to be a political platform,” the group said in a statement. “We are taking measures by training and educating our contract acts to prevent anything like this from ever happening again.”
Several state lawmakers have called for investigations into the fair, an annual event in Sedalia that receives state tax dollars, after videos and photos emerged of the masked clown being mocked during the rodeo Saturday night.

"We've got to hold those responsible accountable for their actions. As far as I'm concerned, the state fair shouldn't receive another taxpayer dollar until we can be sure it truly represents Missouri's values,” said state Rep. Mike Colona, D-St. Louis.

Videos posted online show the Obama-masked rodeo clown being chased by bulls, while someone calls over the loudspeaker: “We're gonna smoke Obama…Obama, they're coming for you this time." The speaker also calls the masked Obama a “big goober,” before saying "This bull's gonna get ya, Obama. He's gonna get ya."

On Sunday, the Missouri State Fair Commission released a statement calling the performance “inappropriate and disrespectful.”

“We strive to be a family friendly event and regret that Saturday’s rodeo badly missed that mark,” the statement read.

The apologies have done little to quash the online uproar surrounding the act.

The state fair’s official Facebook page has been inundated with comments from people across the country.

“No amount of ‘good’ publicity can save you from your appalling display of bigotry and classless racism that you found to be representative entertainment of the Great State of Missouri. It was pure reprehensible and shameful bunk,” wrote James McCall Evans III of Indiana.

Meanwhile, others seemed entertained by the reports.

“Wish I had been at this rodeo! Its hilarious!,” wrote Manny M. Escam of Texas.

Perry Beam, who was among the spectators and has called attention to the act, told the Associated Press that "everybody screamed" and "just went wild” over the rodeo show.

"It was at that point I began to feel a sense of fear. It was that level of enthusiasm," said Beam, a Higginsville resident.

The Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association is a private, non-profit organization that organizes rodeo events across the state.

Speaking through an attorney, Mark Ficken, the association's president who was also an announcer at the rodeo Saturday night, has described the incident as “comments made by a rogue rodeo clown (that) went viral.”

Ficken, superintendent of the Boonville R-1 School District in mid-Missouri, claims he did not know about the stunt in advance and that the clown was wearing a live microphone.

In a statement emailed to the Post-Dispatch, Ficken’s attorney, Albert S. Watkins of St. Louis, said Ficken’s only reference to the clown was to say "Watch out for that bull Obama!" —*which was meant only as a warning.
"He was as surprised as anyone with the appearance of an Obama-masked rodeo clown," Watkins said.

The fair receives funding from the state each year, with reported estimates ranging from $400,000 to $5 million annually.

Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat who will be at the fair Thursday for the annual Governor’s Ham Breakfast, has condemned the act but hasn’t called for any specific response. As governor, Nixon has authority over the state Fair Commission and the Department of Agriculture.

“The governor agrees that the performance was disrespectful and offensive, and does not reflect the values of Missourians or the state fair,” his spokesman, Scott Holste, said in an email.

Republicans have also condemned the incident.

State Rep. Caleb Rowden, R-Columbia, wrote on Twitter: “I don't agree (with) this (president) on many things. But he is deserving of respect and shouldn't be the object of political stunts. Out of line!”

The incident also has prompted comments from Missouri's congressional delegation.

U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., called it a "shameful" stunt.

"The state fair is funded by taxpayer dollars, and is supposed to be a place where we can all bring our families and celebrate the state that we love," she said in a statement. "Missouri is better than this, and I expect someone to be held accountable."

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

This seems appropriate here as well.
