NY Post monkey cartoon

I refuse to believe that this is supposed to be blatant racism, and they were allowed to get away with it.

I will stick my head in the sand and believe they mean a monkey could write the stimulus bill.

I mean, wtf?

I hate to say it, but freedom of speech, and freedom of the press still apply, even when it comes to this garbage.

I never read the Post, prolly because I am in CA and it doesn't make sense to me to read it.

Absolutely. If the cartoonist was thinking of the chimp that mauled someone, he or someone still should have realized the racial implications.

It's the NY Post. They relish the controversy.

Murdoch is an a-hole without a conscience. He will stoop lower and lower throughout this administration. His mission: don't let Obama get re-elected. One month in. I hope this backfires on him big time. The sad thing is that he has tons of influence. This kind of "journalism" is an affront to the American people.

Does no one remember all the photo references to George Bush as a monkey? The thing about the cartoon that bothers me more is the violence/killing. Very clear if implied threat.
