    The Post is the Augusta Chronicle of New York City. Enough said.

    Isn’t your average GLAAD member threatening to boycott the New York Post like me threatening to boycott the new Larry the Cable Guy five-DVD Japanese import bootleg boxed set comprised exclusively of fart jokes?

    Just to play devil’s advocate…..is there actual evidence of ‘defamation’ at the Post or are you using the term loosely? I don’t read the Post and haven’t heard of any lawsuits….

    Just the debasement of said jokes in the hands of a crass amateur like LTCG.

    And those aren’t even weasels; they’re ferrets. As in “ferreting out the truth”. Congrats, Post, you just subverted yourselves.

    The only thing ever funnier than the headlines are those sometimes hilarious Page 6 cartoons.

    The chimp cartoon wasn’t about Obama. One of the Post’s duds, it unsuccessfully suggests the stimulus law is so badly written, it must have been written by a crazy chimpanzee. Not very funny, but it’s not at all racist.

    That cartoonist is way over the top in terms of bad taste, but no other cartoonist would do the Post justice. The perpetually offended need to lighten up.

    This media assault on the Post over an obvious mistake in judgment rather than a deliberate racial slur is a despicable and dangerous attack on free speech in my opinion. Where the hell are the civil libertarians? Scared to come out lest they be called racist bigots too? I guess we are a nation of cowards after all. Good call Mr. Attorney General.

    I viewed the slideshow of Delonas’ cartoons via the GLAAD link. I haven’t seen cartoons that “humourous” since Der Stürmer ceased publication.
