Get Yer Racist Campaign Gear Here!

And I thought the Hillary Nutcracker was bad!

Some clowns out of Salt Lake City, Utah are selling this Obama sock monkey doll:
Prop him up, pose him, squeeze him. Take him with you everywhere you go.

Fall in love with your chosen candidate all over again.

Show your support and take action on your passion today.

Huh? What the hell kind of toy is this?

I think it goes without saying that this “monkey” toy plays on reprehensible racial stereotypes. Is it intentional? I don’t know. I’ve been to Salt Lake City, it is the whitest place in America. Maybe they just don’t know any better. Bless their hearts.

In related news, rumor has it they tried to market a John McCain doll last year but it was recalled.
