A few days ago, a chimp owned by an eccentric lady ate the face off one of her neighbors, and the police shot it. The New York Post, that tasteful rag, decided this cartoon was somehow not offensive. I guess because people called Bush a chimp, it's okay to call Obama one, because we're supposed to be beyond race now.
Sure, perhaps the author was just trying to say that only a crazy monkey on a rampage could write the stimulus bill, and didn't mean that Obama was a crazy monkey on a rampage. I suppose it's not any worse than the vitriol lefty Ted Rall was spewing about Pat Tillman before he got fired. I can't wait for Stewart and Colbert to be back, and weigh in on this.
