iLL iMAGES

The following cartoon was published today in the New York Post:


It's obvious that it was based on the news from CT on Monday that cops had to shoot a chimp because it was out of control (see video below). I guess the cartoonist is suggesting the writer of the stimulus bill was out of control and needed to be put down.

But I'm not sure how anyone thought this would be okay to publish. And I type this knowing that these cartoons are based in satire. But where,exactly, is the line between satire and completely out of bounds? I'm not sure myself, but this definitely falls out of bounds IMO.













Shouts to Wecastr for the video!
