Talk show host Rush Limbaugh likened Saturday's incident over a clown with an Obama mask at a Missouri fair to past reactions by Muslims over perceived insults to Muhammad.

"This is no different than those countries reacting freakishly when there were cartoons of the prophet Muhammad," Limbaugh said Wednesday on his radio show.

"It is as though President Obama is a messiah or is a god. And this little thing that happened at the Missouri State Fair is a defamation, a denunciation, almost a religious sacrilege that took place," Limbaugh said.

"This wasn't a sacrilege. It's a joke, for crying out loud," he added.

Last weekend a Missouri State Fair clown wore an Obama mask during a bull-riding event, depicting the president being run down by a bull. Fair officials placed a lifetime ban on the clown following the performance.

"Presidents are laughed at, and they're poked fun of. Ask George W. Bush. Ask Ronald Reagan. Ask George H.W. Bush. Ask Clinton, for crying out loud," Limbaugh said.
Limbaugh called reactions by liberals "outrageous" and "over the top."

"You people on the left, I know you don't have the capacity for shame, but this is just absolutely — a clown now fearing for his life? Everybody involved in the fair quitting? The state of Missouri acting like it's profoundly embarrassed to be alive?" Limbaugh posed.

"You can't laugh. You can't take a joke. You can't take a punch. You can't take anything. One little thing that you don't like, and this clown can never work," he said.
