Okay, okay, Christine O'Donnell's dad is only a PART-TIME Bozo


In a previous post, I made an egregious error! I quoted a New York Times article that said Christine O'Donnell's dad had a gig as Bozo the Clown.

I hang my head in shame. That was only partially true:

Daniel O'Donnell was an occasional understudy Bozo, not a full-time holder of the Bozo mantle. From their phone conversation: "Who told you I was Bozo?" he wanted to know.

"Your son," I said, at which point he confirmed that yes, he was Bozo, but not an official, full-time certified Bozo, more of a part-time Bozo. [...]

Mr. O'Donnell said... "I was the fill-in Bozo."

What can I say? The guy was only a part-time clown. His daughter, on the other hand...
