“Does this mean that comparisons to monkeys and apes are now fair game in political satire?”

Only if you are a DEMOCRAT, silly.
Nothing is racist if DONE-WHILE-DEMOCRAT!

Is that a quote from Frank Marshall Davis?

This will help Gingrich and hurt Obama. Axelrod is over rated..the ONLY reason Obama won the last election is because the GOP split bigtime on McCain. McCain was mealy mouthed and did not carry the grass roots voters. Americans are FED up with Obama

I understand that they feel threatened, but this is sooooooo low class. Why do I always hear such low-class rhetoric from so many liberals?

Yet we can’t call Obama a monkey, can we. Because that would be racist.
