Missouri State Fair Rodeo announcer Mark Ficken spoke with Missouri.net today on the Obama clown incident from Saturday night. Fricken says he didn’t do anything wrong – it was the clowns’ fault.

“I’ve been witch-hunted!… At no point did I do anything disrespectful to the president of the United States.”

Mark Fricken, the president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, announced his resignation on Tuesday.

The Cowboys will undergo sensitivity training.
The Washington Times reported:

In the wake of a rodeo clown’s anti-Obama skit this weekend, the Missouri State Fair is forcing all clowns to undergo sensitivity training.
The state fair commission voted Monday to ratify the decision to ban the clown in question who wore an Obama mask as the rodeo announcer asked if the crowd wanted to see him get run down by a bull. The crowd enthusiastically approved, according to local media reports.

But the state commission went further, saying it will require that before the Rodeo Cowboy Association can take part in any future state fair, “they must provide evidence to the director of the Missouri State Fair that they have proof that all officials and subcontractors of the MRCA have successfully participated in sensitivity training.”

UPDATE: Glenn Reynolds added: Bush survived, but he wasn’t a media creation who would collapse like a rodeo dummy if subjected to criticism or mockery.
