Another of the many posts I make thanks to co-workers and friends.
So, if you are coulrophobic, what’s one thing you don’t want to see happen? Well, perhaps you’d be unhappy to find a clown running for mayor.
A real clown is running for mayor of Alameda, and even his sister won’t vote for him.
Kenneth Kahn, 41, a professional joker known as “Kenny the Clown,” admits he’s running a long-shot campaign for City Hall’s top spot. Kahn has not previously run for an elected position and has never sat on a public board.
“People ask me, ‘Do we really want to elect a clown for mayor of the city?'” he said. “I say, ‘That’s an excellent question.'”
Kahn’s mother, Barbara, said her son doesn’t have a chance, and Sylvia Kahn, a teacher, said her brother’s candidacy is a “mockery of our system.”
Plus, there’s that whole issue of being scared of your mayor because of that funny make-up he wears. But I suppose that’s probably not the issue most folks focus on.
