Letter: Masks and the presidency
August 16, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter


President Nixon was portrayed as Tricky Dickey, complete with Halloween rubber masks. President Reagan was portrayed as a lovable dunce falling asleep in meetings. There are rubber masks of him, too. Cartoon masks were made of both the Bush presidents and cartoon images of them appeared regularly. President Clinton had rubber masks and he was portrayed with his pants around his ankles. So how come a rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask is a big deal? It appears this comes with the office of president.
