Another truffle for the pig

The New York Post published a cartoon that was a reference to a recent police shooting of a chimpanzee. The caption read, "They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill."

Al Sharpton, the truffle-sniffing pig of racism, decided that the dead ape represented Obama, and was therefore offensive.

I read the cartoon as saying that the stimulus bill was so haphazard it could have been assembled by an animal.

I guess Sharpton needed to get on TV again, so he invented another controversy. What else is new?

Phickle Phelps phans

In a photo that doesn't look much like him, Olympic gold-medalist Michael Phelps is pictured smoking pot. He admitted the photo was genuine and apologized for his behavior.

Predictably, Kellogg's is dropping him, and he has been suspended from swimming competition for 3 months.

This is how he's rewarded for owning up to the photo? He could have said, "That's not me, but the resemblance is striking."

Fortunately for Phelps, his other sponsors are sticking by him. You know, like the fans stuck by him when he was winning all those gold medals in Beijing. Smoking pot didn't hurt his performance any, did it?

Phelps is a young person, and young people do things others may not agree with, like smoking pot.

Older people do things others may not agree with, like torturing prisoners.

I think Phelps' honesty shows character. If I were Post or General Mills, I'd sign him up at a discount rate and put him on my cereal boxes. Cereal is good for the munchies.
