Now here's a mad idea: Invite 10 Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonists to use their sharp-tongued political satire by illustrating an article on "Why George W. Bush Is in Favor of Global Warming" for the March issue of Mad magazine. John Ficarra, the editor of Mad, and Sam Viviano, the art director, assembled the team. They told the International Herald Tribune that the artists were all happy to participate. The contributing cartoonists and the years they won the Pulitzer are: Clay Bennett, Chattanooga Times Free Press, 2002; Steve Breen, San Diego Union-Tribune, 1998; Matt Davies, Journal News, 2004; Jack Higgins, Chicago Sun-Times, 1989; Dick Locher, Chicago Tribune, 1983; Jim Morin, Miami Herald, 1996; Mike Peters, Dayton Daily News, 1981; Joel Pett, Lexington Herald-Leader, 2000; Michael Ramirez, Investor's Business Daily, 1994; and Ben Sargent, Austin American-Statesman, 1982.
