Darts Shot at Obama Likeness in Pa. Carnival Game

Wednesday, 04 Aug 2010 03:41 PM

 

The head of an eastern Pennsylvania amusement company has yanked a carnival game in which players shot foam darts at an image resembling President Barack Obama.

Irvin Good Jr. pulled the target-shooting game after receiving a complaint from a patron attending a fair in Roseto, about 65 miles north of Philadelphia. Good said Wednesday his Hellertown-based Goodtime Amusements company won't offer the game again.

The game featured a large painted image of a black man wearing a belt buckle with the presidential seal and holding a scroll labeled "Health Bill." Players could win prizes by hitting targets on the image's head and heart.

Good calls the game a "big mistake in judgment." He says he voted for Obama and the game wasn't meant to encourage violence against him.
