When satire goes too far

Earlier, and very briefly, NewMexiKen posted a link to a website, currently popular among blogs, where several photos of the President can be morphed into photos of apes with similar facial expressions. It’s moderately clever and somewhat amusing. After some reflection however, I decided the ape site was in poor taste and removed the link.

Now NewMexiKen is no admirer of Mr. Bush, as numerous posts elsewhere on this site make abundantly clear. However, I am an admirer of the office of President of the United States and I do believe its occupants, past and present, deserve respect. Criticize his actions, call him a liar if that’s what you believe, but let’s leave the apes out of it.
