In a recent article posted in central Iowa’s Independent weekly paper City View, they run through their list of 25 Iowa residents that should run for Governor. Amongst the politicians and scholars name-checked is none other than SLIPKNOT’S Clown (M. Shawn Crahan.)!
“Shawn Crahan, one of the Slipknot guys, loves his native state and has lots of ideas on how to attract young people.” writes the paper, “…He’s smart, thoughtful and creative, and he understands the Iowa culture — and what’s right and what’s wrong about it. He’d be an exciting leader. Who wouldn’t want to boast that the governor has a band called Dirty Little Rabbits. Besides, when dealing with the Legislature, he simply could put on his clown mask — so he could fit right in.”
