NEW YORK – (PTSD News) – New York Post cartoonist Sean Delonas doesn’t monkey around when it comes to stirring up controversy. In his cartoon, a cop is holding a smoking gun as he tells another officer as they both stand over the bullet ridden body of a dead chimp, “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.” Civil rights activist Al Sharpton claimed the chimp symbolized President Obama, who wrote the stimulus bill and as such, the image evoked over 200 years of racist depictions of blacks as monkeys or apes.

Cartoonist Delonas said, “calling me a racist is ludicrous. I wish those darkies would stop being such over sensitive Negroes.” “What is their problem?” said Sean Hannity, “it wasn’t like Howard Cosell saying look at that monkey go about some black running back. It’s just the cartoonist referring to Obama by saying look at that monkey write a stimulus bill.”
“The cartoon couldn’t have been about Obama,” said James Carlton of the Heritage Foundation, “because a cartoon inherently can’t be about Obama because Obama is just not funny.”

“That cartoon really scared me because it proved that Obama is really trying to take our guns away,” said Fox’s Bill O’Reilly. “Why are the Democrats angry about this,” said Wayne DeWitt of Wichita, Kansas. “I thought the chimp was Bush because I watch Fox News and didn’t they say Bush was made President for life?”

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin weighed in on the cartoon controversy by saying, “I always wanted to see if it was true that chimp meat tastes likes chicken.”
