Media: Bush as chimp = funny. Obama as chimp = offensive.
The Huffington Post has a front page story today about a "racist" email forwarded by a GOP "activist". So its "racist" and offensive when the President is portrayed as a chimp. Seems times have changed since 2007. The Huffington Post was the host site for a column by a Harvard Phd entitled New Scientific Study Reveals Bush is a Chimp. It would be interesting to see how many Democratic activists forwarded this column or any of the innumerable pictures and websites of Bush as a chimp (just google Bush and chimp and see what you get - 1,410,000 results), but that wasn't news because it was "funny". Bush as chimp is funny, Obama as chimp is offensive. Just more media hypocrisy.
