Ramirez: Every cowboy sings a sad, sad song
posted at 10:12 am on March 10, 2011 by Ed Morrissey
The ever-brilliant Michael Ramirez, two-time Pulitzer winner for editorial cartooning at Investors Business Daily, offers his version of a lonesome cowpoke on the trail in today’s entry. Harry Reid called budget cuts proposed by Republicans “mean-spirited” in part because they would hurt an annual cowboy poetry festival in Nevada. Ramirez tries to imagine the kind of poetry that would have meaning for Reid:
Well, that doesn’t quite rhyme, but then again, there’s nothing too lyrical about Reid anyway. Too bad it will be another six years before that ol’ cowpoke rides his ass out of Washington. Oh, come on, I’m talking about the donkey.
Also, be sure to check out Ramirez’ terrific collection of his works: Everyone Has the Right to My Opinion, which covers the entire breadth of Ramirez’ career, and it gives 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.
Update: Suitably Flip has decided to write some cowboy poetry of his own.
