I have a friend who tells this hilarious story of when he was a kid a mentally challenged neighbor asked him if he'd like to join his Clown Corps. At 12 all my friend could imagine was the ridicule and derision he'd face as a member of Arthur's retard clown army. He had to politely decline.
We'll see if the GOP has better luck recruiting for their rebranded Big Tent party. In the meantime a clever online trickster has outfitted the best and brightest of the Grand Old Pizza Party in full clown makeup. I love it.
Hat tip to my man Honson.
