If something stinks these days, it’s either millions of salmonella-tainted eggs or Recovery Summer. Michael Ramirez, the indispensable editorial cartoonist of Investors Business Daily, puts the two together in what should be the poster for Joe Biden’s ridiculous PR campaign for Obamanomics, perhaps the most misguided political operation from the Oval Office since Gerald Ford’s Whip Inflation Now buttons.

Nothing goes to waste in this gem, including the “Grade FF” label, rather than the solid B-plus the President awarded himself at the end of his first year in office. The text to the right of that Obama campaign logo reads “Produced in Compliance with Union Donations and a Progressive Agenda” — which is precisely why it needs a recall. Now.
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 fascinating look at political history.
