Double Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez¿ book, ¿Everyone has the right to my opinion,¿ is brilliant. With evocative images and the economy of words that characterize the best of political cartooning, no one¿s over-sized ego, or undeserved reputation is safe. Ramirez artfully savages strongly-held, but unexamined ideas. His pen devastates and dismantles in mere seconds what the best of columnists take several minutes to destroy.
Ramirez is the rarest of gems: a highly talented artist, a creative genius, a courageous journalist and a principled and thinking conservative. ¿Everyone has the right to my opinion,¿ represents the highest level of craft in an art that, if practiced correctly, can have a deep impact on the American body politic.
Thomas Nast, the father of the modern American editorial cartoon, would be proud of Michael Ramirez.
Reviewer: Chuck DeVore is a California State Assemblyman, he served as a Special Assistant for Foreign Affairs in the Department of Defense from 1986 to 1988, retired from the Army National Guard as a lieutenant colonel, and is the co-author of "China Attacks."
Michael Ramirez should have his editorial cartoons on the front page of every daily newspaper printed in the USA. A picture really is worth a thousand words.
