Why wait? Here’s the E&P story:

CARTOONISTS
— The editorial cartoonists category has a history of citing the same pool of candidates as either finalists or winners in recent years. The last three winners, Michael Ramirez, Mike Luckovich and Walt Handelsman, had each won previously. Other regular finalists or winners to look for are Clay Bennett, David Horsey, Mike Thompson and Nick Anderson. Of course, with at least 14 daily newspapers dropping their editorial cartoonists in the past year, the pool grows ever smaller.

I’ll take Horsey (no race track pun intended) Talented guy who can draw. Liberal. Got the sympathy factor working for him down the stretch. Unfortunately, that of means an employed cartoonist will lose to one who is under or unemployed -which would be in line w/ the current attitudes in America.

These are my picks, in no particular order:

Etta Hulme
Ann Telnaes
Jeff Stahler
Steve Sack
Clay Bennett

Quite honestly, anyone who has kept their staff editorial cartoonist job this far, deserves a Pulitzer Prize.

I hope the winner is someone who got laid off recently, like Brian Duffy, Bill Day, Bob Ariail or Gary Brookins. It would so shine the spotlight on the idiots in charge of counting beans at their former papers.

If you still have your staff editorial cartoonist job, you deserve a Pulitzer Prize.

Horsey has a LOT more than the sympathy factor. In fact he has the inside track to win his third Pulitzer. Especially since he was one of the judges….. :-)
