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.

Bingo.

More truth from Stockman:

Frightening.
