GOP congressman invites Obama-mask rodeo clown to perform in Texas [View all]

By Andrew Rafferty, Staff Writer, NBC News

The controversial rodeo clown who on Saturday fired up a crowd at the Missouri State Fair by wearing a mask of President Barack Obama — and encouraging a bull to run him down — now has a standing invitation to perform in Texas, a Republican congressman said Wednesday.

Then there is this little tid-bit in the article:
Perry Beam, who was in the stands during the performance in Sedalia, Mo., told the Associated Press that everyone “went wild” as fans cheered on the bull as it charged after the masked Obama impersonator.

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

Beam estimated that the rodeo emcee used Obama’s name close to 100 times during the show. Fair officials have not revealed the clown's identity.

"It was feeling like some kind of Klan rally you'd see on TV," he told the new agency.

A whole lot of hate goin' on there!
