I have to admit that while reading this Mark Leibovich profile of Christine O'Donnell, the news that her father had once worked as Bozo the Clown gave me pause, and I wondered, just for an instant, if she might be exaggerating--inflating his credentials, so to speak. Turns out other people did too, and pressed Leibovich to back up the claim. Well, he did. Point for O'Donnell.
