When is a monkey not a monkey? When the left decides it's a coded reference to Obama

I have a new piece up at Pajamas Media on the row over the New York Post's chimp cartoon, wondering what we're now to make of the Planet of the Apes movies, and in particular Tim Burton's 2001 remake of the 1968 Charlton Heston film, which ends with Mark Wahlberg returning to Earth to find the Lincoln Memorial statue in Washington DC has been replaced by a statue of ape leader General Thade.

On the same subject, David Harsanyi has a good piece at the Denver Post on the whole subject of intentional, unintentional and perceived offence, and Sharpton's attacks on the Post.
