The Mesquite Rodeo isn't shying from controversy this
weekend by promoting the appearance of a rodeo clown wearing a mask of Barack
A similar appearance of a clown wearing an Obama mask at a
Missouri State Fair rodeo with an announcer asking the crowd if people wanted
to see "Obama run down by a bull" made national news earlier in August.
The performance got that rodeo clown fired and banned from
the fair. It also triggered the resignation of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association president.
In a post on its Facebook page, the Mesquite Rodeo said it
has it "on good authority that the Obama Clown and
other Presidential clowns will be making an appearance."
This weekend marks the conclusion of
the rodeo season at the Mesquite Rodeo.
