President Mark 'Kicker' Ficken Hosts Rally and a Rodeo Breaks Out

Rodeo Clown Dresses As President Obama at Mo. State Fair « CBS St. Louis


Mr. Gessling Wearing Mask
(possibly hiding from drone assassin)



The photo was first posted on the liberal blog Show Me Progress. The blog
post tells the tale of a Missouri resident, Perry Beam, who attended the fair
in Sedalia with his wife Lily and a Taiwanese student Saturday night.

“Just prior to the start of the bull riding event, one of the clowns came out
dressed in this,” the posts says, referring to the photo. “The announcer
wanted to know if anyone would like to see Obama run down by a bull. The
crowd went wild. He asked it again and again, louder each time, whipping the
audience into a lather. One of the clowns ran up and started bobbling the
lips on the mask and the people went crazy.”

According to the post, a bull then charged the clown, forcing him to run
away “to the delight of the onlookers hooting and hollering from the stands.”

The announcer in question has been identified as Mark Ficken, president of
the Missouri Cowboy Rodeo Association and Boonville School Superintendent.
Ficken was elected president of the MCRA earlier in the day Saturday.
Monday, in an interview with Missourinet, Ficken said a rodeo clown wearing
a wireless microphone was the one heard making the disparaging remarks.

“At no point…was I involved in any way shape or form with the audio that
dealt with the President of the United States,” he said.

So? Who cares?

Even if the dude did ask the crowd that... Who cares?


We used to have this show, Royal Canadian Air Farce, where they'd shoot rubber chickens and all kinds of disgusting things out of 'cannons' at images of various political figures and celebrities. It was kinda a stupid skit (i.e. not too funny), but also awesome in theory.

They're making it a race thing. Having a black president leaves the door open for some stupid shit from all sides.

Making fun of the President in tasteless and inappropriate ways is every American's God given right! It's why we fought the red coats and all that.

Exactly.


And where does it become a race thing? I'm clearly missing something.

Race?


I'm sorry you misunderstood,

this thread is not about race at all.

it's 'abute' the safety of the president.

"The announcer wanted to know if anyone would like to see Obama run down by a bull."

That's threatening the president or at least evoking violence toward a public official at a family event?

Holy shit man sorry, sorry I miss led you

I don't care if they Sambo up ubama.

I've read about this on different sites and race was brought up. Supposedly someone played with the clown's lips.
