It's interesting that there was an ENTIRE WEBSITE:
that had 18 pictures comparing George W. Bush to Chimpanzees. There were others, such as this one:
In fact, if you google George Bush monkey, you will get over one million hits, many of them showing George Bush next to a monkey and comparing their
It's amazing how things change when the shoe is on the other foot, and the cartoon in question isn't even about Obama, it is about Congress
who after all the bailout bills, lacks the intelligence of a monkey.
Al Sharpton- can you say Tawan Brawley?
In 1987, a 15-year-old black girl named Tawana Brawley went missing and was found four days later covered in dog feces and with racial slurs
written on her body. She claimed that at least two and possibly six white men, one of them carrying a badge, had repeatedly raped her in the woods in
upstate New York. Sharpton took up Brawley's cause and defended her refusal to cooperate with prosecutors, saying that asking her to meet with New
York's attorney general (who had been asked by Gov. Mario Cuomo to supervise the investigation) would be like "asking someone who watched someone
killed in the gas chamber to sit down with Mr. Hitler." According to the Associated Press, Sharpton and Brawley's lawyers asserted "on 33 separate
occasions" that a local prosecutor named Steven Pagones "had kidnapped, abused and raped" Brawley. There was no evidence, and Pagones was soon
cleared. Sharpton then accused a local police cult with ties to the Irish Republican Army of perpetrating the alleged assault. The case fizzled when a
security guard for Brawley's lawyers testified that the lawyers and Sharpton knew Brawley was lying. A grand jury investigation concluded in late
1988 that Brawley "was not the victim of forcible sexual assault" and that the whole thing was a hoax. The report specifically exonerated Pagones,
and in 1998 Pagones won a defamation lawsuit against Sharpton, Brawley, and Brawley's lawyers. Sharpton was ordered to pay Pagones $65,000. Johnnie
Cochran and other Sharpton benefactors subsidized the payment.
Another non-story, puffed up by the biggest puffer of them all, Al Sharpton.
