President as Ape in Chimp Cartoon


If you stopped here because of the headline looking for the New York Post cartoon, it's OK, I have included a copy below.

The comic above is typical of liberal deceptions of our last president, George W. Bush. In fact, I ripped this one from the Democratic Underground blog, and I ran across copies of it on the Huffington Post, et al.

The cartoon below with the crazy chimp ran in the New York Post. As anyone who passed their middle school civics class would know, the cartoon is actually poking fun at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ... not the president.


Well, it has to do with two things:

First of all, Speaker Pelosi has been exhibiting some pretty crazy behavior as of late.

Secondly, and more importantly, it is because the stimulus bill referred to in the cartoon, as do all other spending bills, MUST ORIGINATE IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Pelosi conducted closed-door sessions when writing the stimulus.


I wouldn't go so far as to say those who decided to protest about the cartoon are stupid, but they are engaging in the 'business' of race bating. Then again, these are probably the same folks who voted Democrat in the last election....

(NOTE: Whenever the Senate does initiate appropriations legislation, the House practice is to return it to the Senate with a blue piece of paper attached citing a constitutional infringement of House prerogatives. The practice of returning such bills and amendments to the Senate without action is known as "blue-slipping." Without House action, Senate-initiated spending legislation cannot make it into law.)
