Congratulations to Michael Ramirez, the great editorial cartoonist who won his second Pulitzer prize today. Too bad for Los Angeles Times that forced Ramirez out in 2006. This is what he had to say today.
"My approach is to have a powerful image along with a significant statement," said the Investor's Business Daily (IBD) cartoonist, when reached by phone this afternoon. "It's great to be funny, too, but the most important element is the message -- to have an impact and make people think."
