    The Weekly has obtained a copy of an email sent to fellow conservatives this week by Marilyn Davenport, a Southern California Tea Party activist and member of the central committee of the Orange County Republican Party.

    Under the words, "Now you know why no birth certificate," there's an Obama family portrait showing them as apes.

    (Donald Trump must be elated to finally have an explanation about Obama's true birth circumstances.)

    Wait a second? Are you telling me that conservatives are finally conceding that evolution is true?

    While we are all aware of the racial aspects of the chimp/monkey accusations, I find it comical that those who take offense to this often had no issue with all the Bush-Monkey comparisons, and in fact often enjoyed them.

    Bad taste is Bad taste, but for some people its only offensive if its against someone you like.

    I guess it's a good thing that nobody here is taking offense to this picture.

    Is there a long history in the US of white people being called monkeys as a racist, derogatory and degrading term?

    Hey, I'm not saying that picture is "right" at all. And, sometimes we may all joke around too rough at times, too coarse, and yeah, there are wrong racist remarks, that doesn't make it right. But for crying out loud, just Google, "Bush" and see what you get for pictures...

    bush - Google Search

    Do I hear people crying "racist" here and there about any of the Bush or Clinton or other's pictures?

    Morgan Freeman's got it spot on when he said:
