40/29 offers a report, with photo, of a rodeo in Greenwood, where an effigy of President Obama was knocked around by a bull and then kicked by a rodeo clown.

The TV station reports that some were unhappy about the disrespect for the president.

CNN noted the incident in a reader-provided post, with this commentary :

Apparently, many Greenwood, Arkansas rodeo fans’ idea of family entertainment includes violent displays of hate toward President Obama. A crude effigy was produced during the rodeo on Saturday night, and then violently beaten and destroyed in response to an announcer’s call to the audience: “Who wants to rip Obama’s head off?”
