A New York Post cartoon that appears to link President Obama to a violent chimpanzee drew criticism Wednesday on media Web sites and from civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton.
The cartoon in Wednesday's Post by Sean Delonas shows a dead chimp and two police officers, one with a smoking gun. The caption reads, They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.''
The cartoon refers to Travis the chimp, who was shot to death by police in Stamford, Conn. on Monday after it mauled a friend of its owner.
It links the chimp to Obama, who signed his administration's economic stimulus plan on Tuesday.
At its most benign, the cartoon suggests that the stimulus bill was so bad, monkeys may as well have written it,'' columnist Sam Stein wrote in the liberal-leaning Huffington Post. Most provocatively, it compares the president to a rabid chimp. Either way, the incorporation of violence and (on a darker level) race into politics is bound to be controversial.''

Why insult the poor dead chimp?
Oh dear....here come the howls of racism....
someone’s about to get nationalized ...
Considering the chimp could have written a better and more responsible bill, it does seem unfair to chimps everywhere.
it doesn’t link obama to the chimp. obama didn’t “write the stimulus bill”.
cartoonist was just making a link between crazy berserk monkey & stimulus bill.
NBC are liars.
Ping to you kind sir!!
Kind of in bad taste with the guns. I sure do appreciate the point though.
That applies to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi more than it does to Obama.
“it doesnt link obama to the chimp. obama didnt write the stimulus bill.”
Exactly. Zero did not write the Bill. He would actually have to do some work to do that. The point is that the bill is so bad a monkey could have written it.
Since Obama didn’t write the stimulus bill, only a racist would see a monkey and think “He’s talking about the president.”
When do we start reading about the racism of the Huffington Post?
Amazing how the media lies in such a left handed way. And the sad thing is, their drones will take to it hook line and sinker, not realizing the syphilis bill was wriiten by a bunch of jackasses.
Except that’s what happened. The cops shot the chimp who was ripping the face off a woman.
Don’t you think Obama is like watching a chimpy swinging through the trees with dollar bills flying out his butt, yelling I can help, I can help ...
No matter how one interprets it, it’s disgusting and in very poor taste.
I thought the legislature was supposed to write the laws in this country.
If anything, the cartoon is an insult to Nancy pelosi and Harry Reid.
Cue the professional victims...
Wouldn’t that be linking the chimp to Congress? The House is full of chimps, look at chimp leader, Pelosi! LOL!
