It’s not particularly hard to draw one’s own conclusions re: the kerfuffle surrounding one little iddy biddy editorial cartoon in Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post.
I mean, sure, it appears to simultaneously (1) depict the first Black President of the United States as a monkey (2) who has just been executed by the police… and it has the adorable caption “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.”
I suppose, thirty days after the inauguration of our nation’s first Black President, that this particular cartoon appearing in an arch-right-wing paper might be interpreted to mean something other than the deliberate depiction of President Barack Obama as a monkey being gunned down… it’s possible that this is some sort of “honest misunderstanding”… by my calculation, it’s possible… at roughly the same likelihood that historians will consider George W. Bush the greatest President in American history.
