Cartoonists in the news: Pat Bagley

Pat Bagley, the editorial cartoonist with the Salt Lake Tribune, recently spoke at the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah where he spoke about the unique, and ripe culture for cartooning that Utah provides.

Bush has “been good for me because he’s radicalized me,” Bagley said. “I used to be kind of a moderate Republican. I’ve been pushed to the left.”

Although he is a registered Independent, not a Democrat, Bagley regularly pokes fun of the conservative Republican political majority in Utah.

The Utah State Legislature is a key Bagley target. He consistently depicts conservative lawmakers as heavy, balding, bespectacled old men who openly carry firearms. One cartoon criticized them for insisting that guns be allowed on the U campus.
