Bush Chimp v Obama Chimp: Chimp News Update

February 22, 2009

There was a a lot of comment on our earlier postings: Bush Chimp vs Obama Chimp and Chimp Story Has Legs….

Rev David Mannings take:

The View Goes Overboard….

David Drake says it’s again a case of the left seeing racism where it doesn’t exist.
