Creston Rodeo clown apologizes
September 19, 2012
Thanks to the Founders and defenders of our great nation, we are afforded our free speech rights. With those rights comes responsibility.
At the Creston Classic Rodeo on Sept. 15, I irresponsibly told a joke that many people found offensive and I apologize.
This was a joke I read in 2010 and chose to recycle it during this election season. I simply substituted Ann Romney’s name where the original joke used Sarah Palin’s name.
While no apology will satisfy everyone, I hope those of you in the Creston area with whom I have had a 15 plus year relationship will accept mine. I wish all of you much future success with the Creston Classic Rodeo.
Mike Hayhurst was the rodeo clown at the Creston rodeo in September.
