You may have noted, dear reader, that earlier this week the 2008 Pulitzer prize winners were announced. The winner for editorial cartooning was Michael Ramirez, an artist for Investor's Business Daily. His winning portfolio of work (posted here on the Pulitzer website) includes some really funny pieces, like this one:
It's one thing to draw powerful cartoons about the war in Iraq (on either side of the matter), but coming up with a brilliant -- and devastatingly truthful -- cartoon about ethanol policy is Pulitzer-worthy indeed.
(Hat tip: Tim Gross in The Corner for posting about the award and putting up a copy of Ramirez's latest (also a good one).)
