If you want lefty cartoons far and away worse than that link to he Detroit Free Press. Their guy is a commie tool and a poor artist to boot.

RBK, you kind of lose credibility when you ask the left wingers here to criticize their own side without doing the same in these types of situations.

I'm pretty sure you're reading WAY more into it than was intended but as long as it justifies your predispositions (i.e. predjudices) regarding people with whom you disagree then it must be all right.

I do not see this as racial (of course Al Sharpton does) but see it as a broad parody: politicians=monkeys or politicians are not too smart. Thats about it-it that so trashy? As I mentioned before, its actually lame.

My issue with the Post here is that they knew exactly what they were doing. If the President was not black I dont think there would be much of a stir about this cartoon. But he is. Now if u cant see that, I cant help u.

No ... believe most here would agree that you are the one with the poor reading comprehension skills here, comrade.

Wow, we've just been schooled in predispostions regarding people by the expert in the field.

You are a tool.

So this is the cartoon that blow-hard Sharpton got all ticked off about? He's probably the kind of guy that would think I'm a racist if I walked by him and didn't say hello or make eye contact because I'm minding my own business. I wish he'd just go away.

Man that cartoon is about as blatantly obvious racist as I've ever seen. Of course what do you expect from a Rupert Murdoch owned entity.

No, they accomplished exactly what they set out to do. They printed a questionable cartoon in order to get some people's panties in a twist so then they, and other like-mined folks, could sit back and say "That wasn't our intention at all, but jeez, you Libs need to lighten up. You're so PC and have no sense of humor." Brilliantly played. Despicable, but brilliantly played.

Considering this IS the NY Post we;re talking about , I think this assesment is pretty spot on IMO

I'm SO SURE if it had been a cartoon of Bush getting shot by the Cops the Hannity/Limbaugh/
Krauthammer/Coulter/Drudge mob would've kept their yappers shut.
