Barack Obama 'monkey' phone advert row - Telegraph

A mobile phone advert apparently portraying Barack Obama as a monkey has provoked a new row about racial depictions of the Democratic candidate.

I presume these are the same people who complained about George Bush being portrayed as a chimp....

Apparently not, no:

"and to defend it by claiming that our current president has been compared to a lesser primate just shows that the promoters flat out don’t get it"

Sigh

'thinkprogress.org'

Was ever a domain so ironically named...?

"I presume these are the same people who complained about George Bush being portrayed as a chimp...."

There you go, bringing logic into a discussion of Lefty sensitivities. Silly man.

Oh well one shouldnt let anything an american political person complains about be taken too seriously!
