For Sharpton, it's called Wednesday

A cartoon appears with a cop shooting a chimp based on an actual even where a chimp went on a rampage. Al Sharpton sees it as a chance to get in front of a news camera and remind people how important he still is.

"The cartoon in today's New York Post is troubling at best given the historic racist attacks of African-Americans as being synonymous with monkeys. One has to question whether the cartoonist is making a less than casual reference to this when in the cartoon they have police saying after shooting a chimpanzee that "Now they will have to find someone else to write the stimulus bill."

"Being that the stimulus bill has been the first legislative victory of President Barack Obama (the first African American president) and has become synonymous with him it is not a reach to wonder are they inferring that a monkey wrote the last bill?"

To some degree, I hope he keeps this up and others will start to see his game. Screaming of faux outrage at any intended atrocity imaginable.
