My Bucket List Cartoonist

I've added two time Pulitzer winning political cartoonist Michael Ramirez to my bucket list.

Someday I need to meet and have a long talk to him.  His political cartoons during our recently concluded presidential election were not only spot on, but biting in their wit and sarcasm.

Anyone else find it ironic that the "3 AM telephone call" buzzword was aimed at then candidate Barack Obama by his primary opponent, now Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?

I would laugh, but somehow it just doesn't seem all that funny anymore.

Seems like even Hillary doesn't know what to do when that telephone rings at 3:00 AM these days.  She is planning to step down, and Obama wants to replace her by "it was that awful movie" Ambassador Rice?

But never fear faithful Republicans, Congressman elect Brad Schneider will shortly supply us with his pearls of wisdom on the growing crisis in Egypt while he continues to "completely" support Obama's policies and positions.  Or is his phone also off the hook?

  1. I've met him. My wife works at Creators Syndicate, which syndicates his editorial cartoons. He's one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.
