The Monkees – “Opening Theme”
Breitbart reports, “Barack Obama in 2008: Both Parties ‘Have Monkeyed Around With Elections’“.
Then-Senator Obama (D-IL) said: “I come from Chicago. It’s not as if it’s just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past. Sometimes Democrats have, too. You know, whenever people are in power, they have this tendency to try to tilt things in their direction.”
But, of course, if a Republican like Ron DeSantis uses the colloquial expression….
So Barack Obama saying, "It’s not as if it’s just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past. Sometimes Democrats have, too" would be a racist 'dog whistle' too? Shall we hoist him on a petard right next to DeSantis? Crickets on that one, I suspect.
