Letter: Shocking remarks

The public remarks made at the Creston Rodeo were not only shockingly racist, but politically insensitive, as well. To make matters worse, in his unqualified bad judgment this “clown” probably failed to recognize that Ann Romney, indeed women everywhere, would be offended by his blatant sexism, too.

I don’t blame the organizers, although it would have been wise to have intervened, had someone had the wherewithal to do so. I do find disturbing the comments from attendees who saw nothing wrong with the “jokes.” What kind of a knock on the head did this rodeo clown receive?
