The responses from so called 'minority leaders' are so typical they've become caricatures of themselves.

The cartoon clearly represents a recent event and ties it with the most poorly written bill in recent history.
And since Obama had absolutely no part of writing the bill how could it possibly refer to him?
It clearly is making fun of the legislation that is so poorly written a rabid chimp could have written it.

And where was the outrage when Bush was constantly compared to a chimp?
Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson et al need to STFU and DIAF.

NO actually, the inference is crystal clear. I'm not one to scream RACISM at every turn, far from it, but you'd have to be wearing opaque goggles to not see this as offensive. Dumb artist for not knowing how to get a point across (or if that was his point, then he's a racist fuck artist), dumb newspaper for not having a damn clue.

And where was the outrage about Bush being compared to a chimp? I'm sure there was plenty among his fans. I dunno, maybe if white people had an entire history of being considered and equated to African animals, it would've been more newsworthy.

Seriously, people.

Not even close.
Blacks in this country need to get a grip and stop looking for the evil white boogie-man around every corner.
I'm not white by any stretch of the imagination and I was never brought up to see racism at every turn.
If blacks want to talk about racism and injustice in this country they need to get in line behind Indians. You don't constantly hear about Indians whining about the hand they were dealt.
We just deal with it and we love this country immensely. Why do you think that there were tons of Indian volunteers from the Rez for both WWI and WWII. And during WWI Indians weren't even considered US citizens.

I knew that cartoon would be called racist the moment I saw it.... It's a sign of the times, people.... Just like socialism... Any and every critical view of this administration will be met with calls of racism, either implicit racism or overt racism depending on the mood of the day.

Obama didn't write the bill and it's a common thing to say a monkey could have wrote something when it's so poorly written.

Wasn't it you, Gc, one of those who said Obama's "lipstick on a pig" comment was not aimed at Palin because it was a common expression? Why aren't you applying the same standard now?

if you look at the big picture, he's saying that the bill was written by a monkey (because it's that ridiculous), not that obama is a monkey. [captain obvious]

I wish I could find it offensive, but I don't, I actually laughed out loud.

The cartoon drew hundreds of comments on the Internet and on the liberal Huffington Post Web site, where reporter Sam Stein wrote: ``At its most benign, the cartoon suggests that the stimulus bill was so bad, monkeys may as well have written it. Most provocatively, it compares the president to a rabid chimp.''
But monkeys did write it and his doom and gloom was like a rabid monkey.

Gov. David Paterson said he hoped the Post would clarify the latest cartoon's meaning, but said he had not seen the drawing.
That was funny since he is blind. Guess the blind will be picketing 1010 wins once someone reads the web page to them.

So you really don't see it, huh? You should spend some time at the Stormfront forums, maybe you'll see something there.

Do you know why racist jokes work? Because they're actually funny. I know you're not familiar with the concept, but when there's actual comedy, the intent is more clear. This cartoon wasn't funny in the least bit. There isn't even a mention of the monkey's name anywhere (travis) to reference the event he's supposed to be parodying. It's just a monkey, getting shot by cops, who happens to be responsible for the stimulus bill. It amazes me that I've had to explain it to this degree.

Anyone who's been watching the news would know exactly what that was about just like I did. And anyone with a brain larger than a chimp's would get the reference to the poorly written piece of garbage that was signed into law and the expression about about how "chimps could have written it". Doesn't take a lot to get the funny, unless you're too blinded by the notion of racism in everything that has a black person and a chimp anywhere close to each other, even if the connection is faint and based on interpretation.

Why does everyone gotta scream racism when a black person's involved? Yet they always wanna scream equality...make up your fucking mind!!

The artist CLEARLY was referencing the old saying "even a monkey can do that..."

You know, if they hadn't elected a black president, they wouldn't have to worry about racist cartoons.

The cartoon was tasteless, plain and simple. It borders a racial line that the artist shouldn't have attempted to walk. Regardless of how you look at it, monkeys have always been a derogatory comparison to black people and all you have heard in the news is Obama's push for the stimulus bill. It can be very easily interpreted the other way. The artist and editor should have used better judgment before running that cartoon. However, it is the post so I'm not too surprised.
