Waaaahbulance Time In The Leftosphere Over Cartoon

I guess it is a day for Manufactured Hypocritical Outrage today in the Nutroots. First we had the freakout at Michelle M. over Obama-Hitler comparisons (snicker), now

A cartoon likening the author of the stimulus bill, perhaps President Barack Obama, with a rabid chimpanzee graced the pages of the New York Post on Wednesday.

The drawing, from famed cartoonist Sean Delonas, is rife with violent imagery and racial undertones. In it, two befuddled-looking police officers holding guns look over the dead and bleeding chimpanzee that attacked a woman in Stamford, Connecticut.

Yeah, Ok, uh-huh, sure thing, sparky. Should I perhaps post up a few of those wonderful cartoons by Pat Oliphant and Ted Rall, you know, the ones demeaning the troops, referring to Condi Rice as a house ni**er, or, some of those other lovely oneswishing death on Dubya? Not too mention the assassination chic, wishing the bomber had gotten Cheney in Afghanistan, wishing Laura Bush had lost her leg when she had a little growth removed, etc, and so on. You know the hit parade. But, hey, let’s not forget the lovely “c” word shirtsunhinged Palin haters were selling. Hanging Palin for Halloween.

Lighten up, nutroots. It’s not always about you. Ever heard the parable about a million monkeys typing on a million typewriters? Or, maybe they just meant the bill was so bad that a monkey wrote it. But, don’t forget to get upset with Pandagon for the vaguely racist header graphic (hint: jungle next to Obama logo)

    How pathetic!!

    First off Obama did NOT write the stick-it-to-us bill.
    He delegated that to Pelosi and the house Dummycracts.

    If they had showed a monkey doing something that Obama actually did then maybe, just maybe, they may have weak argument that it was a racist insult.

    Manufactured outrage indeed! Obama didn’t write the bill, unless the nutroots are seriously suggesting he dashed off a 1000+ page work in a few days (impossible even with Bill Ayers’ help).

    It’s obvious to anyone who’s not an idiot that this is a comparison between a crazed ape and the leadership of Congress, not calling Obama a monkey!

    Pat Oliphant wished death on Bush, or called Condi Rice a bad name? I’d like to see that. (ie, don’t just threaten–put ’em up! Evidence is fun!)

    For what it’s worth, I don’t see a racial overtone to the cartoon. You’re right to snicker at the folks who are outraged over it. It deserves ignoring.

    It’s just not that clever. The analogy of an face-eating 200 pound chimp going apeshit doesn’t function as incisive stimulus criticism no matter what your opinions are. It’s not an outrageous cartoon–just a dumb one. Stick to what you are good at: one-word irony–nutroots, stick-it-to-us–as well as zingers on Ayers and citizenship and Hussein. Our nation has renounced government by zinger and irony and ad hominem and conspiracy and good old Joe-the-Plumber ignorance; it didn’t work well, sure, but I advise you to crouch over here and keep working on that stuff. Ideas are out; leadership is risky; facts are irrelevant. Zingers! That’s how we’ll put people back to work! Irony saves homes! ad Hominems defeat terrorists! Joe the Plumber!


  4. Ice, click the name for Pat Oliphant. It’ll pop up a picture.

    It’s just like “put lipstick on a pig,” only turned about. “Putting lipstick on a pig” is a common metaphor, and saying something looks like it was done by monkies is the same.

    Those creatures over there on the left would like to stifle debate and shut up opponents of the Spendulous Bill. So they grasp at straws to slander opponents. The “Racist!” card is their big club. So they’ll always try to drag it in, by hook or by crook.

    God forbid they be made to defend their follies by reasoned debate!
