Send in the clowns! Mark Steyn offers hilarious idea for Putin

Finally: Smart diplomacy!

Obama might not be in the mood to personally transmit information to Vladimir “Slouch” Putin, but as always, Mark Steyn has a brilliant suggestion: Send in the clowns!

A Vodka summit with the now-famous rodeo clown? Obama is so there.

How could Obama resist publicly entering our Important National Conversation™ on race and rodeo clowns? But he’ll be sipping Bud Light, thank you very much.

One thing’s certain: Between Obama, Putin and the rodeo clown, there would be plenty of bull.

    We should deport Piers Morgan and Import more Brits like Mark Steyn.

    • greatunconformity

      Are Canadians considered Brits? I think they are considered subjects of the Monarchy.

      • Aaron Matthew Arnwine

        I believe he has us citizenship now.

          Living in NH. Live Free or Die. At least until more MA commuters immigrate and vote in a MA-like state legislature.

          • FascistNanny

            they all come here for a simpler less taxing existence, then continue to vote Dem as they did in Mass and now the government creep and sloth has spread like a metastasizing tumor.

            Perhaps it’s time for a radical Mass-ectomy.

        “subjects”…That’s what We’re being turned into in the USA, or would that be serfs??

      Steyn is a Canuck but he lived in Britain for a couple decades. Hence the mingled accent. 😉

  • CatHerder

    Those awkward silences would stretch on forever.

  • V the K

    Has the rodeo clown been waterboarded yet? He may have information about other clowns plotting to ridicule Dear Leader.

    • Pablo

      Across the nation thousands of clowns are plotting to unleash angry bulls on the President.

    • Republicanvet

      Prolly not but I bet the NSA and IRS are locked in.

    • zeke

      hope there aren’t any obscure arrest warrants outstanding. otherwise it’s the 1 AM knock on the door from the brownshirts

    • Guest

      After the IRS checks out the Clown Guild, their phone records scrutinized and God help him if he attended a Tea Party function, he’s destined to be sharing space with the Benghazi video guy, who is still in jail.

  • Fire and Adjust!

    I’d rather see Putin dress up as the Obama Rodeo Clown………….and I’d pay BIG money to see it……and I’d pay even more to see Obama and the left’s reaction once it happened………………Now THAT would be great pay per view!!

    • TugboatPhil

      You should be in marketing if you aren’t already.

      • Fire and Adjust!

        Thanks for your vote of confidence………but marketing is too closely related to media, and most media is way too liberal………… it would be a sure fire way for me to end up in a padded room……….

    The Rodeo Clown was just sighted at Gitmo. They had to let a Jihadist go free to make room for this dangerous clown.

    • TugboatPhil

      The jihadi is probably a mid level bureaucrat in the Obama administration now.

    • AmericanMom

      He made fun of Obama; now, like in all third world dictatorships, he has to pay the price. Anyone with a video of it should be very concerned if Obama’s people come knocking at their door.

  • taosnow

    Obama will never take his mask off.

  • arttie

    How about hanging the mask on a chair and having the summit Clint Eastwood style?

    • nc

      Would be more honest, no?

  • Magnifico

    May as well. My dog can paw the right policy answer more often than Obama.

    • nc

      ^ for working your dog into the comment.

  • Suzyqpie

    The visual on that is too rich. There’s macho Putin surrounded by the accoutrements of State, flags, body guards, interpreters with officious ear pieces, with the rodeo clown. If I won the lottery I’d spend it all staging this event.

  • capisce

    “Bin Laden is dead and rodeo clowns are on the run”.
    The stuff of legends.

  • OpenTheDoor

    Every body lamented like Job amongst the ashes when Rodeo Clown got fired.
    Probably the best career move ever, based on black on white racism. Score.
    This is way dumber than when David Howard lost his job because of having a better vocabulary than Marshall Brown.
    We a’int buying it and underscores the Obama worship of the loons on the left.

    • TomJB

      But when he ends up getting 2 part time jobs to make ends meet, he will show up as a net gain of 1 job for the President’s “recovery”

  • Dave Wiggins

    Send in the COTUS !

    • NixTyranny

      If COTUS (I like that) is banned, would it be called COTUS Interruptus?

  • mickeyco

    I’ve long thought that to have a great sense of humor you have to be bright. Steyn, and the comments below prove my theory.

    • NixTyranny

      What amazes me about Mark Steyn, in addition to his incomparable wit, is the breadth of his knowledge that goes way beyond politics or history. I never miss his weekly column because each one is priceless.

      • nc

        I’ve got him book-Mark-ed.

  • Jeff H

    The rodeo clown would be the most respectable person in the room. The RODEO CLOWN, however, would be the least masculine, by far–Putin’s man-boobs notwithstanding.

  • Mountain Man

    My apologies, in advance, if this has already been suggested.

    Everyone who wants to stop this ridiculous liberal tantrum should buy an obama mask and wear it to as many venues as they wish. With thousands (?) of masks showing up all over the place, it will dilute the liberal’s enthusiasm for their false and offensive charade.

    • Maureen Williams Frier

      Not in west Texas, man! Sporting one of those masks and driving down a farm road, or city street for that matter, might get your ass shot!!

      • Secede

        At least run over several times.

  • Ben Bollman

    Mark Steyn is the only fill-in host for Rush that I look forward to.

    • nc

      I actually like most all of them, but I agree that Steyn is the best.

      • Ben Bollman

        The other guys are alright but they aren’t as humorous as Steyn or Rush himself. I actually wish Steyn had his own show.

  • Chasseur

    Would the summit earn Putin a Nobel Peace Prize? Or just intending to hold the summit should be enough right?

    A great Solution for the “banned for life Rodeo Clown future employment.. .. He needs to show up for work wearing an Oprah Mask and carrying a $38K handbag, that can double as a barrell / Oprah lunch bucket.

  • robert anthony

    The rodeo clown is a threat to national security and ‘incites violence’ against a sitting President…the left are still ‘looking for a motive’ for the two islamic Boston bombers.

  • garygramscom

    Yea, al except for the fact that Putin is a serious leader and he does not have time for clowns…. rodeo or other
