So, we're long past the point where they're trying to hide it. It's just out in the open, unapologetic, and proud.~ Posted by Klute on Daily Kos
Here's Barbara Espinosa of "Hair on Fire" calling President Obama the "first monkey President".
Transcript from Radio Show:
"America Thinks It, Barbara Says It"
Caller named "Richard": I wish people who run these shows have to guts to ask how many people voted for that idiot in the White House. I want to know who voted for that guy in the White House, that guy with rabbit ears....
Barbara Espinosa: I call him a monkey.
*gasp heard in background*
Caller named Richard: *rants about Vietnam and Communism*
Barbara Espinosa: I don't call him a guy with rabbit ears. I call him a monkey. I don't believe in calling him the First Black President . . . I voted for the white guy myself.
Caller named Richard: *says he had a sign for Herman Cain in his yard*
Angry Caller named "Joe": This show just took a very interesting turn (short laugh) . . . and I can't believe that people who say they value freedom would be so intolerant to any other belief but their own. The things I just heard are insulting, just insulting....even if you just want notoriety by what you said, that's your choice, but you know what? That was wrong, that was just wrong. Thank you for your time. *click*
Barbara Espinosa: Okay, thank you for calling . . . Joe? Are you there? Joe hung up and Richard hung up, okay. . . (music starts)

(Cartoon Posted by Espinosa on Blog)
To set the record straight I did use the word monkey and Obama in the same sentence. Yes I did say I voted for the white guy. Unless there has been a takeover of America and free speech is no longer allowed and I can be put to death for making a remark, I refuse to take the fifth.
According to theory of evolution humans are a descendent of primates. Evolution is any change across successive generations in the inherited characteristics of biological populations. Evolutionary processes give rise to diversity at every level of biological organisation, including species, individual organisms and molecules such as DNA and proteins.
A monkey is a primate of the Haplorrhini suborder and simian infraorder, either an Old World monkey or a New World monkey, but excluding apes. There are about 260 known living species of monkey. Many are arboreal, although there are species that live primarily on the ground, such as baboons. Monkeys are generally considered to be intelligent. Unlike apes, monkeys usually have tails. Tailless monkeys may be called "apes", incorrectly according to modern usage; thus the tailless Barbary macaque is called the "Barbary ape".
The New World monkeys (superfamily Ceboidea) are classified within the parvorder of Platyrrhini, whereas the Old World monkeys (superfamily Cercopithecoidea) form part of the parvorder Catarrhini, which also includes the hominoids (apes, including humans). Thus, as Old World monkeys are more closely related to hominoids than they are to New World monkeys, the monkeys are not a unitary (monophyletic) group.
