[ A professional clown - Kenneth Kahn, aka "Kenny the Clown" - is running for mayor of Alameda in California. The 41-year-old clown admits that even his sister won't vote for him, but he's still hopeful to win city elections in November. ]
Call me silly, but this news is no bigger surprise to me than Gary Coleman running for Miss America 2006, except that Gary Coleman is slightly more qualified. There are too many clowns in politics already, not that you didn't know that. Which makes our country a few clowns short of a circus. See, once in a while I like to tell you things you already know, just so that I sound smart. So next time you run into a politician, make sure you ask "Hey mister! Are you a clown?" Then check if all his balloon animals are ribbed and lubricated.
