1. Ramirez is a putz
Leading up to our terrorist attack on Iraq he always had pro-war cartoons. Now he believes Dumbo is being unjustly accused of being the liar that he is.

7. He's more than a putz.
He has a screw loose, lots of screws loose.
When you can figure out what his point is at all,
you are always amazed that he thought he was making
sense. This is a perfect example, there is no connection
whatsoever between the old picture and what he's trying
to say. A man who does not need drugs to hallucinate.

2. My, my
I keep seeing more and more alusions to the 1960s

Didn't Jr say that he did not want to repeat that film
called the 91 war? Well he avoided that, but boy
are we getting a sequel to the 1960s

5. I keep seeing the Rethugs trying to blame Clinton
$Every message board in hyper-space now has at least one reference to Clinton, the way Democrats voted in the past about military action, and that they voted to support Shrub's Dirty Little War (SDLW).

My question to ALL of them has been:


If Bush relied on 5 year old intelligence and the voting records of Clinton's Congress to start the war, should he resign because he didn't have confidence in his own intelligence apparatus, or should he resign for incompetency?

4. wow...
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 08:36 PM by paper chase guy
now that's what I call a political cartoon! Pretty powerful.

Maybe I shouldn't, but I hope the secret service is investigating and this cartoon gains a TON of exposure because of it. (And the cartoonist's career soars as a result.)

edit: ramirez was pro-war? had no idea :) That makes it even better, lol

9. Interesting ...
They expected DU to be all over this and mis-interpreting it the way they did.

11. One thing was clear
Bush was in trouble.

I think Bush would be furious about the cartoon because he likes to think of himself as a macho hero (the fighter pilot stunt).

The cartoon shows Bush being treated the way the Republicans have treated the Democrats. And Bush would never want to be seen as the victim.

12. If you read bewtween the lines
of Drudge's story, it's abundantly clear that this is a White House sourced story.

They actually didn't understand the cartoon.

Ponder that. The President of the United States of America is not literate enough to read an editorial cartoon.

15. This post freaked me out
To: ConservativeMan55

The secret service should padlock the LATIMES and jail all the people that work in and own this slimy commie rag.

This could be the end of his dumb cartoons.

13. The Commercial Appeal's loss was the Los Angles Times'
gain.

14. Putz, yutz, prick take your pick!
I can't stand that a-hole. I sent a letter to the editor about one of his bias cartoons and after it was printed, some repug called my house at 1am cussing me out.

There are two letters in LA Times today condeming this cartoon. Maybe his ass will get sacked for this.
