How is it racist?
Surely it'd just be as racist as calling Mr McCain himself a monkey? All humans, regardless of skin colour and whatnot, look just as similar to apes/monkeys as each other (albeit, hairless, more sophisticated apes).
Degrading and insulting is more accurate. Makes McCain just as immature as the one he taunts. My kidswould get detention for doing this in a classroom.
