Is witch doctor image racist?

The NAACP and Salon say that Tea Party signs "often" show Pres. Obama as a witch doctor and that that is racist. I haven't seen those signs even though, as the links below demonstrate, I have been to a lot of tea parties.

Would the reverse be true: when a liberal portrays a conservative or libertarian as a witch doctor, would that be racist also?

That isn't a hypothetical questions. Here, for example, is a cartoon from a liberal Seattle Post-Intelligencer cartoonist, David Horsey:

The cartoon is making fun of African culture, is it not? But, since the target is the Bush administration, I expect that no Democrat would think it racist.

Because it attacks Bush, it can not, by definition, be racist.
