America's Premier Editorial Cartoonist
Two-Time Pulitzer Prize Winner
At this most wonderful time of year, please join us for a humorous look at our country and political landscape through the eyes of Michael Ramirez, America’s premier editorial cartoonist whose work is seen world-wide in over four hundred newspapers and magazines. Ramirez is a regular contributor to The Weekly Standard Magazine and The Daily Signal. Ramirez says of his work, “An editorial cartoon is not just a funny picture. It is a powerful instrument of journalism, sometimes sharp and refined, its message cutting quickly to the point, and other times, blunt and overpowering….”
In a world of textual information, Ramirez combines an encyclopedic knowledge of the news with a captivating drawing style to create consistently outstanding and highly incisive satirical cartoons. Mr. Ramirez is the author of "Everyone Has the Right to My Opinion" and "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Obamacare". Both books will be available for purchase.
Ambassador John Bolton, describes Ramirez, "Through his wry humor, understatement and unmatched sense of irony, Ramirez captures our recent history in ways professional historians should envy. Nobody does it better."
Let’s end 2017 with a chuckle or two because it certainly has been a year for the history books.
