O’Donnell Opponent Launches Family Circus Campaign

We’d like to thank Mr. Chris Coons of Delaware for providing us an excuse to post the I Am Not a Witch ad, which we ignored yesterday because, well, our head was asploding. For the record, we are not Christine O’Donnell. Furthermore, we have more than one nostril.

No Bozos Here, Says World’s Leading Bozo Expert

Breaking BozoGate News! A visitor to our original Christine O’Donnell Bozo post thickens the plot:

My name is Pat Cashin. I have a daily clown history blog called clownalley.net and am on the Board of Directors of the International Clown Hall of Fame and Research Center in Baraboo, WI.

Let us begin our journey with this Bombshell News from the New York Times:

“We were a big noisy family with a lot of backyard skits and carnivals,” said Ms. O’Donnell, whose mother, Carole, called her Chrissy the Pooh and whose father, Daniel, worked a series of small television roles before scoring his signature gig — playing Bozo the Clown.

That would be enough to overtake Bill Maher in the O’Donnell Revelation Sweepstakes, but rather than snicker at Celibabe’s upcoming campaign bio, My Dad Was a Bozo, we’ve been absorbed the past few hours with the disturbing suspicion that Dad’s signature gig cannot be verified.

And so, welcome to our first installment of In Search of Bozo.

Bill Maher Holds Christine O’Donnell Hostage, Week 3…

On becoming a Christian: “I was dabbling in witchcraft. I’ve dabbled in Buddhism. I would have become a Hare Krishna but I didn’t want to become a vegetarian. And that is honestly the reason why — because I’m Italian, I love meatballs.” [ThinkProgress]
