    I remember some people hanging Bush in effigy as part of a Halloween decoration.  Back then, that was protected speech as "art".  Now, a tasteless joke, been told with a thousand different people in different versions, hate speech?

    That's because it IS a joke. A joke that has been around for YEARS. Funny how all of a sudden you NOW have a problem with it.

    From a non partisan political joke teller.

    Funny, if you look, the same joke is told, with different people.

    It's a joke, not appropriate for general consumption but still a joke. 

    Nobody wishes harm to Obama or his family.

      The "subtext" of the "joke" is Racist, especially coming from a Republican Tea Party activist based in South Carolina.

    It makes the "joke"  even more repugnant!

      Look the truth is that Republican policies have destroyed America!

     And they continue to strive to do so!

     Jon Huntsman even said they are a bunch of unelectable idiots!!

     Let's hope so!

    And there's the race card being played folks. Quite honestly I'm surprised it took this long to be played. You guys are slipping.

      The Tea/Rubs are masters at playing the so called "RACECARD". They are the idiots who perpetuate it and wallow in it....cause that is their only hope of winning.

       Misguided idiots!

     You should address the fact that Huntsman deems you a bunch of unelectable idiots!

    The rules are simple: 

    Leftwing moonbats fein outrage at everything.

    Right wingers foolishly expect the left to actually have a point now and then.

    Can someone explain to me how the joke (or its subtext) is racist, especially as it has been used to talk about at least one other President, who is white?

    It doesn't matter if the joke was targeted to another President. The only requirement for something to be qualified as racism is someone (from a demographic on the "always a victim" list) to declare said something as racist. Then Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton call press conferences which triggers off a series of pimping and ignorant accusations.
