So says New York Post editor-in-chief Col Allan, who issued the following statement after Al Sharpton criticized the cartoon—which appears in today's Post—to the Associated Press:

"The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut," said editor-in-chief Col Allan. "It broadly mocks Washington's efforts to revive the economy. Again, Al Sharpton reveals himself as nothing more than a publicity opportunist."

There's no question that Sharpton's occasionally guilty of being a "publicity opportunist," but there's also no question Col Allan is full of shit.
