Who's the "Man in the Yellow Hat"?

He believes he knows everything...
...so what is there for him to be curious about?

Good idea. Black guys as monkeys. Way to re-enforce the idea that critics of Obama are motivated by racism, dude.

K: I don't want to get into an argument here, but the illustration above does NOT portray BO as a monkey. However, I can cite dozens of illustrations of George Bush being drawn and photoshopped as a monkey during his presidency. Were you outraged about these?

Doc, I believe he's referring to "Curious George", a child's book character that is a monkey.
However K might want to read some of those same books. George comes off as wanting to do well, but manages to screw things up.
People see what they want to see.

I know he's "referring" to Curious George, and, while he COULD have drawn him with monkey features, he decided not to.

John: I love this. However, if "K" doesn't like it, perhaps you could do one titled, "Cover Your Own Ass-The Story of Barak Obama".

The racist assumption that "K" raises didn't even cross my mind. Does that make me more enlightened?
The "screw-up" thing is all that crossed my mind. However, I don't see BHO as a well-intentioned do-gooder who just can't seem to get anything right; he's a misguided dogmatic ideologue who wants to override natural law with his seriously screwed-up vision of how the universe SHOULD work "if God had gotten it right"--the end result being a know-nothing who thinks he's omniscient running the greatest republic in recorded history into the ground at a record clip.
There is also another thing that crosses my mind:
“Democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage.” – H. L. Mencken
From Mencken's POV, Harry Reid is a monkey--Nancy Pelosi is a monkey--Tom Perriello is a monkey--Al Franken is a monkey (no, wait--he really IS a monkey)--Ron Paul is a monkey--John Boehner is a monkey--all of God's chillun' in government are monkeys (meaning they're cretins who happen to be in charge, but they aren't evolved enough to manage themselves--much less the circus).

Actually I think John is rather prescient, given Colbert's appearance before a Congressional Committee the other day.
The clowns are running the circus!

I got a pretty big kick out of Colbert's complete & utter lack of reverence; not so much from his "testimony", but in watching the faces of politicians fighting to suppress their rage. Colbert--a bleeding heart & big government water-carrier if ever there was one--was not only refusing to bow & kiss their rings, but he was lampooning them to boot.
I'm glad to see that--in spite of the fact that my politics couldn't be much farther from Colbert's without expanding the universe--even the Lefties on the whack-job end of the political spectrum are coming to the realization that even "their guys" are nothing but a joke.
