Has the artist been fired, or merely suspended? (Edit: Yes, of course he has. How silly of me to ask.)
Yes - that story - but the part of it in which the chimp was shot - not the part where the woman was mauled.
I think Setanta's right - they took advantage of the part they could use.
Quote:How many times was Bush portrayed as a chimp?
Good question--perhaps you could tell us precisely how many times a political cartoon appeared in the New York Post, or any publication of an equivalent respectability (not much, though, in that particular case), in which the Shrub was portrayed as a chimp. Frankly, i suspect you'd play hell coming up with any example in a major newspaper in this country.
You could look at it that way - and actually I'd rather look at it that way than to believe that there's the amount of hateful and dangerous racism directed against Obama that this cartoon could be interpreted to imply.

I can't see them firing Sean Delonas. He's a conservative darling and favorite of Murdoch.
Well, of course, that is not an example in a major newspaper in this country. I haven't denied it's true, but i am asking Tico to put his money where his cigar is . . .
It appears the simple point is the chimp -- now dead -- could have written a better bill.
anyone with half a brain would know that regardless of intent this cartoon would stir up a hornets nest of racial implications.
therefore at best this cartoonist is a stupid ******.
at worst he's a stupid ******* racist.
demoKKKrats only sat there calling George W. Bush "chimpy" for the last eight years.
Memory problem or something??
