An Insult To Clowns

A large number of bloggers have referred to the ongoing insanity outside a certain hospice in Florida as a "political circus." I think that's an insult to clowns and other circus performers. Indeed, if there is a Clown Anti-Defamation League out there somewhere, it needs to put out a press release deploring the comparison, before someone starts asking how many self-promoting political hacks and freaks can get out of a tiny car. So what is a legitimate way to illustrate the depths of this appalling spectacle? Jerry Springer Meets the 700 Club, on acid? Florida Surreal Estate Boom? Jabberwocky? The Trail of Alligator Tears? Ah, we're already missing Hunter Thompson.
