RACIST? If those (mainly the professional protestors like Al Sharpton) that think this cartoon is an attack on Barack Obama (who by the way did not write the Stimulus Bill) then they should be asked they they aren't outraged that the chimp being shot? Simple, they have forgotten that a chimp was shot after attacking a friend of its owner? You can't have it both ways.
The audacity to think this is racial shows that race in America can never be beyond us. I have called the White House on five different occasions asking for a quote on the historic nature of having a black man, Michael Steele, elected chair of one of our political parties only to NEVER have my called me back with a quote. Not even a low level communications person, no one. So am I to think that the White House is racist for not wanting to praise the election of Michael Steele?
To me, if it representing Obama, it would be a bigger outrage that he was shot and how that is overlooked is beyond me.
