What chimp let this cartoon run?

Here's one that could have used an editor.

What chimp let this cartoon run?


one that could have used an editor.

The New York Post ran a cartoon today that has drawn some heat - not to mention phone calls, e-mails and threats to burn down the building.

I'm guessing its creator, Sean Delonas, thought he could lasso a few things in the news, the economic stimulus package and that wild chimp story.

Why? Why?

Romensko did a nice job of linking the chatter from the chattering MSMersbloggers, Tweeters.

The Post's editor defended the drawing. "The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut," Col Allan said in a statement. "It broadly mocks Washington's efforts to revive the economy."

Gawker collects some favorite cartoons that Delonas has drawn. He sure does spot-on work with gay people, too.
