Stimulus for Controversy: The New York Post Obama Monkey Cartoon

The political cartoon depicting a chimp shot dead by cops for writing a bad stimulus bill has some up in arms:

But the monkey isn’t supposed to represent President Obama, it stands for the idea that the bill is so poorly conceived as to have been written by a chimp. My objection with the cartoon stems from its violence, not the characters.
