Michael Ramirez recently gave a speech to the Pacific Palisades Republican Club’s election year kick off brunch. You can read a follow up story about his remarks in the Palisades Post.
“The difference is I get paid to be obnoxious. Politicians are just obnoxious,” Ramirez said in his opening remarks. “Editorial cartoonists are like pit bulls trained to attack at the slightest provocation. I sometimes feel like this hybrid between Edward R. Morrow and the Son of Sam. You need to know who the enemy is to draw conclusions, then draw blood. I’m an equal opportunity offender. If I haven’t offended you yet, I will soon.”
