Both ladies insulted by rodeo announcer.
For one why joke about a woman getting paid for porn. Again the total disrespect of women. But he went even further. He said that playboy would offer Ann Romney 250,000 and the National Geographic would offer Michelle Obama 50.00.

A racist joke about First Lady Michelle Obama made by a California rodeo announcer over the PA system on Saturday has sparked considerable controversy.
During the Creston Classic Rodeo in Creston, Ca., the announcer reportedly joked over the loudspeaker that ?Playboy is offering Ann Romney $250,000 to pose in the magazine, and the White House is upset about it because National Geographic only offered Michelle Obama $50 to pose for them.?
?I was really appalled and the people around me were really appalled,? spectator Dona Wilson told the San Luis Obispo Tribune. ?He was acting like we were buying into his bigotry and we weren?t.?
The newspaper asked for comment from the rodeo?s board members. ?I can?t speak for the board, but I myself think that this is unacceptable behavior or conduct by the announcer,? board member Mike Barrett said. ?I find it offensive, and I think that it?s conduct unbecoming the rodeo announcer.?
Three board members told The Tribune the announcer was Ed Kutz of Arroyo Grande, but that fact has yet to be officially confirmed. Barrett called Kutz asking him to publicly apologize, but has yet to get a hold of him.
