Stockman/Rodeo Clown '16—

Well, that might be pushing it, but Rep. Steve Stockman is reaching out to the Missouri rodeo clown booted for wearing an Obama mask at the state fair this past weekend:
Stockman has invited Tuffy Gessling to perform at an upcoming Texas rodeo.
From the press release:
“The liberal reaction is straight out of Alinsky. They want to crush dissent by isolating and polarizing anyone who questions Obama, even if it’s a rodeo clown with a harmless gag,” said Stockman. “The idea to create a state of fear and make people afraid to trivialize Obama. No one tried to personally destroy the rodeo clown who wore a George H.W. Bush mask.”
He’s right. At a 1994 rodeo, a bull attacked a dummy wearing a George H.W. Bush mask. Smells an awful lot like a double standard.
More truth from Stockman:
