Limbaugh to Mo Dems on Obama Rodeo Clown: “You Can’t Take a Joke”

Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday decried the left for not being able to take a joke, comparing reaction to a Missouri State Fair rodeo clown performing wearing a President Barack Obama mask to outrage over Prophet Muhammad cartoons.

“He’s the president of the United States! They get made fun of! They get laughed at all the time! Fun is poked at ’em. I know this happens to be the first African-American one, but that should not insulate this president from standard, ordinary, everyday treatment, analysis, whatever,” Limbaugh said on his radio show Wednesday, according to a transcript.

Earlier this week, Democratic politicians including Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill and Rep. William Lacy Clay slammed the act at the state fair, calling it “ugly” and intolerant.” The clown who performed the show was banned from the fair.

“You know, you people on the left, who the hell do you think you are? You can’t laugh. You can’t take a joke. You can’t take a punch. You can’t take anything,” Limbaugh said Wednesday. “One little thing that you don’t like and this clown can never work, everybody involved is resigning.”

Limbaugh, who grew up in Southern Missouri, said the reaction was as though Obama was a religious “messiah.”

“This is no different than those countries reacting freakishly when there were cartoons of the prophet Mohammed. That is exactly what this is,” Limbaugh said. “C. S. Lewis said the devil can’t stand being made fun of. The devil can’t stand being mocked. … You people on the left, I know you don’t have the capacity for shame, but this is just absolutely – a clown now fearing for his life?”
