have you seen it? i do understand what its saying but i definitely see how it could be taken out of context! i think the caption should have been worded differently.
this is what its supposed to mean:
"The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut. It broadly mocks Washington's efforts to revive the economy. "
what are your thoughts on it?
Okay IMO I guess I find some sort of it funny being that that's pretty much how I feel about the whole stimulus bill, I honestly don't think of it as being racist even though it may be, and even though I do think its sorta funny I don't think its very nice of them to make light of a tragic situation with the chimp and that lady, I guess it depends on who interprets it and how they do for instance I think of it as them saying that the stimulus bill was such a joke that its like a bunch of monkeys wrote it KWIM

Have you seen how many political cartoons showed Bush as a Big eared monkey? That is what political cartoons do. People are SEARCHING for ways to silence anyone who has an inkling of criticism for Obama, his policies, his cronie politicians. Have you noticed that SNL STILL hasn't done an Obama skit? Unless they did one last weekend (I missed it) ...Political Cartoons made of Politicians BEFORE Obama, and they will make fund of Politicians AFTER Obama.
