    You're right -- it is ludicrous for this to make national news, because there's no new story involved. Bigots have been circulating racist BS about Obama for years now.

    Have you ever bothered to go over the insulting "artwork" aimed at Obama's immediate predecessor? Labeling this stuff as bigoted or racist diminishes both words. Tasteless, thoughtless, but the sort of thing that political cartoonists do every day of every Presidency.

    Wow, you sure convinced me! Not a trace of racism in that "cartoon" at all. Zip.

    This is a racially specific insult. It doesn't mean the same thing to label a white as an ape as it does to label a black as an ape.

    I wonder what would be the racist equivalent against whites?
