This editorial cartoon in the New York Post has caused a deluge of criticism. The question: Is it racist  or otherwise excessively offensive to draw a parallel between President Obama and a crazed (dead) chimpanzee?

It's also true that many made sport of the former president's physical resemblance to a chimp.
