Ramirez on Daschle

January 11, 2002

Michael Ramirez's Jan. 8 cartoon equating Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle with Sept. 11 attackers goes beyond bad taste. To equate Daschle's economic ideas with murderous, terrorist actions suggests to me that Ramirez thinks that normal political give and take, if it does not bow down to our $1.3-trillion tax cut president, is a danger to our nation. This cartoon is hateful and petty in the extreme.

Typically I find Ramirez's cartoons simply unfunny and overly obvious. But his Jan. 8 effort featuring a small plane hanging out the side of the White House crossed the line into distasteful. Mocking the suicide of a 15-year-old boy is truly offensive.
