Ramirez: A familiar smell at the UN

posted at 2:00 pm on September 27, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist noted Hugo Chavez’s pleasure at not smelling sulphur when he spoke at the UN podium this week, unlike his last appearance when he went out of his way to personally insult then-President George W. Bush.  Ramirez appears to agree in this case, as he aptly describes the smell the rest of us regularly encounter when Chavez speaks publicly:

Ramirez has a terrific collection of his works: Everyone Has the Right to My Opinion, which covers the entire breadth of Ramirez’ career, and it gives a fascinating look at political history.  Read my review here, and watch my interviews with Ramirez here and here.  And don’t forget to check out the entire Investors.com site, which has now incorporated all of the former IBD Editorials, while individual investors still exist.

OBAMA
AROMA

The smell that keeps on keeping on.

Be right back. I have to go take a Chavez and wipe my Obama.

HoustonRight on September 27, 2009 at 2:06 PM

I think a bovine rear end would be better. All full of bullsh!t

Sekhmet on September 27, 2009 at 2:09 PM

Smells of Marlboro Menthols and appeasement.

marklmail on September 27, 2009 at 2:11 PM

Hee hee. For all the liberals (or is it progressive’s?) love of all things Chavez, I don’t think they’d appreciate the humor of this cartoon. Of course they also don’t appreciate the fact that Ramirez would probably wind up DEAD if he published that cartoon while living in Venezuela.

Now that’s FUNNY!

Nice

That is a throne of sorts, fittingly so!

Don L on September 27, 2009 at 2:18 PM

If that’s a low flow toilet, we’re all gonna need a plunger.

Oh, they appreciate it all right: they’d be cheering it if it happened.

Spiny Norman on September 27, 2009 at 2:22 PM

No wonder the left is trying to take away our toilet paper.

Dhuka on September 27, 2009 at 2:29 PM

Mark Steyn said it best, a mixture of ice cream with dog poo…and the entire house, er U.N. smells like…yep…

Schadenfreude on September 27, 2009 at 2:31 PM

All that hot air, I bet he’s a floater.

Dhuka on September 27, 2009 at 2:29 PM

Just the fluffy Charmin. We’ll be allowed the standard socialist state ono-ply brand one finds in public restrooms in Europe.

And Sheryl Crow will insist we only use one square each time.

Wethal on September 27, 2009 at 2:38 PM

In other international news, conservatives have just won the German election. Mind you, they’re “center right,” for all that means in Europe.

Sharke on September 27, 2009 at 2:40 PM

Methane is odorless…. (No “wink” smiley I can put in here.)

Andy in Colorado on September 27, 2009 at 2:42 PM

totally OT – can anybody else get on Drudge today? I haven’t been able to see it yesterday or today…

JustTruth101 on September 27, 2009 at 2:42 PM

HA seems to fixated on bodily functions today. Heh

d1carter on September 27, 2009 at 2:50 PM

Drudge is fine.

HoustonRight on September 27, 2009 at 2:06 PM

LOL good one. Just remember….if you shake your Harry Reid more than twice…your playing with it.

Newspapers in communism; perfect use for the NYT and etc.

Schadenfreude on September 27, 2009 at 3:02 PM

Chavez IS the skid marks on the bowl…

I dispute this vigorously.

Sharke on September 27, 2009 at 3:18 PM

He could have stopped with the toilet, but the arrow is PRICELESS.

Ramirez is the best.

Schadenfreude on September 27, 2009 at 3:02 PM

Not quite. Newspaper ink can cause anal cancer. Besides which, all you’re really doing is spreading it around. Parrot cage yes, litter box yes, wiping no.

Sharke on September 27, 2009 at 3:22 PM

He’s smelling his own mustache.

mrt721 on September 27, 2009 at 3:38 PM

The odor that you smell is fascism. You’ll get used to it for the next three years though.

Mojave Mark on September 27, 2009 at 4:56 PM

Maybe I just didn’t notice but have we always had so many nincompoops running so many countries at the same time? Seems as if there is an unusual and excessive number at present.

jeanie on September 27, 2009 at 5:15 PM

Be right back. I have to go take a Chavez and wipe my Obama.

HoustonRight on September 27, 2009 at 2:06 PM

ha ha ha

My Obama is still tingling with delight after the big Chavez I took a few minutes ago.

Must have been that Mexican food I had last night.

UltimateBob on September 27, 2009 at 5:37 PM

Lord, I just took a partial “vacation” and look what’s happened on hotair.com….the commenters are getting seriously funny…thank you all, I need a good laugh just to get through the day with the new administration and it’s apologies for everything, including the toilet bowl.

sharinlite on September 27, 2009 at 5:59 PM

I bet he’s a floater.

Sharke on September 27, 2009 at 2:36 PM

That little Turd (Chavez) it made me mad
the way it floated so.
I tried to flush it down again
But still, it would not go!

TN Mom on September 27, 2009 at 6:05 PM

Is the UN the world’s largest Porta-Potty?

Dhuka on September 27, 2009 at 6:23 PM

LOL good one. Just remember….if you shake your Harry Reid Durbin more than twice…your playing with it.

Paco on September 27, 2009 at 3:02 PM

FIFY

Oh my gosh! I haven’t laughed this hard in a while. Wiping tears now. Thanks for the much needed chuckle!

MalindaH on September 27, 2009 at 7:34 PM

Give HoustonRight a free TV for his off the cuff humor….
the gifts just keep on flowing.

But but but we are in California
We only have a Pelosi

Don’t even use the newspaper for the bird cage !!!!!. It might kill the poor defenseless bird.

HoustonRight on September 27, 2009 at 2:06 PM

It’s a public forum. Don’t be so personal and so “graphic”. Keep your Chavez and Obama out of this discussion. They’re so YUCKKIE!

You know, the kind that is always in short supply when it is time to print the telephone books.

Paco on September 27, 2009

Not fair. Women don’t have a Harry Reid…well, I guess they do have a Pelosi.
Oops, was that over the line?

SKYFOX on September 28, 2009 at 8:56 AM

Chavez smelling BO now! Chavez should stop smelling around and commit himself to an asylum so Venezuela can prosper and become free again.
