    So, doing the same thing with a GWB mask on would have been OK with the right? Yeah, right…

    I have no idea how I missed this story of vital international importance, but I have to say mea culpa, I did miss it, and had to look it up.

    @skipcarlsen – obviously I am just speculating. I think if it was 10 years ago and it had been a President Bush mask it would have been a minor story in the media just like the Obama rodeo clown story has been.

    For what it is worth, I am a teacher and for years when students have worn a mask of a current or former president to school as a halloween costume (and they do every year) I tell them I feel it is disrespctful to the office. I always ask them to reconsider what they are doing. Often the sudent understands what I am saying and takes it off.

    And the NAACP calling for an investigation of the rodeo clown—is THAT “overreacting”?

    It wasn’t the mask, it was the call for Obama to be hurt by a bull that crossed the line. And had it been a GWB mask in the same situation, there would have been a negative response.

    Also note that the fair in question is supported in part by government funds. As such it should try to remain non-political.

    All that said, who really cares? Get a life people.

    Well, we know that if you said you were ashamed of him, you’d be called a traitor.

    It’s not the color of his skin, it’s the thinness of it.

    So would be offended if it was a Bush Mask when Bush was President?

    Given the us-vs.-them mentality that seems to be at the root of what passes for American culture these days, I expect that there will be more and more hate and disrespect, some demonstrated more crudely than others.

    I think the most proper response is sadness that our “civilization” is so willing to act like children.

    Perhaps the best response is the one that worked best at recess: don’t encourage him. If you ignore stuff like that, it will probably stop. It is all calculated to get a reaction. Don’t react, and it’s no fun any more.
