From the Inside Flap

An editorial cartoon is not just a funny picture, says two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Ramirez. It is a powerful instrument of journalism, sometimes sharp and refined, its message cutting quickly to the point, and at other times, blunt and overpowering, seizing the readers' attention with its dark imagery.

In Everyone Has the Right to My Opinion, Michael Ramirez, the internationally known editorial cartoonist for Investor's Business Daily who has been making headlines and stirring up controversy since 1983, offers a comprehensive collection of his award-winning cartoons, accompanied by an introduction to the images highlighted throughout the book. Each cartoon shows that a picture is worth a thousand words and transforms the news of the day into eye-catching, provocative, and hilarious images that draw people into the democratic process.

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. His commentary on everything from the economy and markets to politics and international affairs offers a unique perspective on today's issues, particularly during presidential election years. They take a humorously insightful look at the world around us, making readers laugh while informing them on the issues of our times.

Some of these cartoons may make you laugh. Some will make you cringe. But all of them will make you think. Throughout Everyone Has the Right to My Opinion, Ramirez's artistic skill, biting humor, and penetrating analysis shine through and shed light on what's really going on in our world today.

From the Back Cover

Praise for Everyone Has the Right to My Opinion

"Ramirez lances the Left with the best weapon of all. Humor. As Ronald Reagan said, 'Just laugh at them.' Mike is second only to me in showing how it's done."'
—Rush Limbaugh, radio host

"Michael Ramirez says more in one cartoon than most talking heads say in a full day. Plus, Ramirez is hilarious."
—Bill O'Reilly, anchor, Fox News Channel

"The quickest way to end all debate with liberals is to pull out a cartoon by Michael Ramirez. Michael has an uncanny ability to cut through all the spin and expose the truth in a single, often hilarious, picture."
—Sean Hannity, anchor, Fox News Channel

"In today's political environment where liberals hide behind the label of 'progressive' and moderates pose as 'conservatives,' Michael Ramirez strips them of their disguises. His powerful points of view are conveyed in an incomparable illustrative style. No other editorial cartoonist today can match the majesty and wit of Michael Ramirez's cartoons. With his razor-sharp eye and potent pen, Ramirez takes no prisoners. Liberals, bureaucrats, and imposters beware."
—Ann Coulter, six-time New York Times bestselling author

"As a columnist who works with words, I strongly reject the familiar axiom that a picture is worth a thousand words. Unless, of course, they are the marvelous pictures that Michael Ramirez draws. They are sometimes worth a thousand columns. And—this really is unfair—he gets to add his always well-chosen words to his pictures. See, for example, page 26, where a public school official lays down the law to a clergyman: 'You can't say prayers during graduation ceremonies. But if you print them on condoms, we would be happy to distribute them.' What fun."
—George F. Will, nationally syndicated columnist

"Editorial cartoonists are able to convey in a simple, yet vivid and powerful message what the columnist often needs 1,000 words to do. The best cartoons—funny or sobering and serious—are like an unexpected punch to the gut. The brilliance of a great editorial cartoon is its simplicity in carrying great substance. If editorial cartooning were baseball, Michael Ramirez would be Babe Ruth. If you like really cutting-edge political humor and want to laugh and cry at the foibles of America's political figures, this book is for you."
—Mike Huckabee, Governor of Arkansas, 1996–2007, GOP Presidential Candidate 2008

"I'm a longtime Investor's Business Daily reader, so I know and appreciate Michael's work firsthand. While some editorial cartoonists focus on the punch line and forget the point, Michael seamlessly mixes humor with hard-hitting journalism. His two Pulitzers are well deserved."
—Larry Kudlow, host, CNBC's Kudlow & Company

Double Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez' book, "Everyone has the right to my opinion," is brilliant. With evocative images and the economy of words that characterize the best of political cartooning, no one's oversized ego, or undeserved reputation is safe. Ramirez artfully savages strongly-held, but unexamined ideas. His pen devastates and dismantles in mere seconds what the best of columnists take several minutes to destroy.

Ramirez is the rarest of gems: a highly talented artist, a creative genius, a courageous journalist and a principled and thinking conservative. "Everyone has the right to my opinion," represents the highest level of craft in an art that, if practiced correctly, can have a deep impact on the American body politic.

Thomas Nast, the father of the modern American editorial cartoon, would be proud.

Reviewer: Chuck DeVore is Vice President of Policy at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. He served in the California State Assemblyman from 2004 to 2010. Before his election, he was an executive in the aerospace industry. He was a Special Assistant for Foreign Affairs in the Department of Defense from 1986 to 1988. He is a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army (retired) Reserve. DeVore is the author of "The Texas Model: Prosperity in the Lone Star State and Lessons for America," the co-author of "China Attacks," and author of the novel "Twilight of the Rising Sun."

On the political cartoon landscape, Michael Ramirez casts the longest and "brightest" shadow. Not only is his mind as clear and adept at capturing issues at-a-glance, his art work never ceases to amaze me.

Many editorial cartoonists seem to be capable thinking, but appear to be lacking in genuine artistic ability. They produce glorified stick figures that require a lot of help from the viewer to fully capture the artists desired result. Not so with Ramirez. He splashes the page with wit and wisdom in full color, with exquisite detail. Most often working on a 24-hour turn-around, the work he produces is simply amazing.

Gave this as a gift to a conservative relative and he loved it. I'm a cartoon guy from way back and log onto IBD Political Cartoons & Opinion almost daily to see what magic Ramirez has cooked up for the day. He's spot on most of the time.

Ramirez combines great pen and ink art with rather cutting satire, and it amuses, educates, and alarms in turn. Unfortunately the Kindle version of his illustrations are very small and hard to read. But I enjoyed each of the selections.

As William Bennett says in the introduction to Michael Ramirez's collection of editorial cartoons, "editorial cartoons stir controversy, spark debate and discussion, and move minds to think thoughts not thought before." They can succinctly and clearly express a point that would take a lengthy essay to make. The Pulitzer Prize committee has twice agreed that not only is Ramirez a fantastic artist, but he's a brilliant commentator as well. I don't believe there is a better political cartoonist in the country.

This collection includes his Pulitzer collections from 1994 and from 2008, plus many more. Each one calls to mind political events and figures and debates brilliantly. I remember when I was a kid my dad had a book, a cartoon history of the United States, but I was too historically ignorant at the time to get the humor. The cartoons in Everyone Has the Right to My Opinion cover the last 15-20 years, well within my memory.

Ramirez is definitely a conservative, and conservatives will be nodding and laughing in agreement at almost every frame. On a few occasions he does stray from the party line, notably his balanced treatment of the Middle East. One of my favorites clearly illustrates a pet peeve of mine: the use of biofuels, driving up the price of food and taking up arable land. A man in a Western suit is taking an ear of corn away from an African child. He says, "Excuse me. I'm going to need this to run my car."

As one who talks with self-proclaimed investing experts on a regular basis in my professional capacity, I saw another favorite, a chain smoker sitting in front of his computer, pulling a slot machine lever. The caption: "Day trader."

There are too many great ones to reproduce here.

This is a page turner and these political cartoons should be published in every paper. It is pure genius to succinctly make a political point with a cartoon and a few words. With shipping this book was less than $10 and in like new condition.
