Cartoons in the Era of Political Correctness

It seems that the world has gone mad (what a revelation). Last summer we observed a Danish cartoonist get skewered by Muslims because of his simple depictions of Muhammad in cartoon form. Seems you can trash everyone except for Muhammad. Interesting.

Now we have a new “controversy”. A New York Times cartoonist published a cartoon depicting two police officers shooting the errant monkey that attacked a woman in Stanford, CT. The caption on the cartoon said, “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.” Some, hopefully a small some, thought the NYT was referring to President Obama as the monkey. There is one problem with this analogy – President Obama didn’t write the stimulus bill – congress did. All Obama did was sign the boondoggle. I guess we can assume the cartoonist was referring to the monkeys in congress. Apt comparison I believe.

When are we going to stop being so overly sensitive about everything any slight change to the norm “offends” us. As we go further into the PC abyss, I wonder where this nutty behavior will stop. I say, get a grip and get a life.

Of course, that is just my opinion.
