Yes, it is, and you can't defend it.

Rep Roy Blount of MO, running for Senate, speaking at the Values Voters Summit yesterday:

"Almost from the day the first ball was hit on this golf course something happened they didn't anticipate: monkeys would come running out of the jungle and then grab the golf balls.
(pause for chuckles) And if it was in the fairway, they might throw it in the rough. And if it was in the rough, they might throw it -- they might throw it back at you! (pause for mild laughs) And I can point to great and long detail about how many things they tried to eliminate the monkey problem, but they never got it done. So finally for this golf course and this golf course only, they passed a rule and the rule was, you have to play the ball where the monkey throws it. (pause for laughs) And that is the rule in Washington all the time. (pause for huge laughs)"

Just how is this joke in this context NOT racist!!!! Most of the opposition to President Obama is not racist my left buttock cheek....
