Ramirez Crosses the Line With Moore

August 14, 2004

Michael Ramirez has now tried twice to associate Michael Moore with Sen. John Kerry (Aug. 8 and 10). Other than that both men are critical of President Bush, there is no connection. A political cartoonist should be more than a political hack who makes partisan arguments to inflame certain groups. A good cartoonist comments on the political process in honest and thoughtful ways to allow the reader to see with new eyes. Can't The Times please find such a cartoonist?

Ramirez's obsession with Moore is another manifestation of the Republican campaign to malign and discredit him after his devastating revelations in "Fahrenheit 9/11." Methinks they doth protest too much!
