The president lampooned as a monkey was Abraham Lincoln, in 1863. He’s holding the Emancipation Proclamation.

And George W. Bush, for eight straight years.

Americans have always lampooned presidents, often brutally. It’s practically an American tradition.

In the past mocking the Preezy of the United Steezy didn’t spark opportunistic calls for Secret Service investigations. So that’s new.

Depicting the president as a monkey, and a rodeo clown making fun of him, how horribly racist, we must make an example of these people, ban them for life, and send them to reeducation camps, and all of you racists must pay reperations for the insult. Oh wait, my mistake, you are talking about when they did it to Bush, never mind, that is OK. Its only bad to criticise and mock a president when it is Obama.

Now, you can't be pokin' no fun at, or making those humiliating caricatures of our 2nd black, but first affirmative action president.

It's like picking on a cripple.

Besides, in three years he'll be gone. In four, nobody on this side of the fence will remember him at all. The rubes on the other side will loudly disavow any knowledge of him or the First Clydesdale.

why would we bother to lampoon his looks, when we've got all those 'wordsy-ish' things he has said whenever the TOTUS is not hooked up.

Well, since the PC Left is so sensitive, choose from the many varieties of spider. They can't whine about that. Well, they can but they'll be hard pressed to come up with vintage racist postcards on that theme.
