    You ever think about how political cartoonists are paid more or less entirely to reduce complex concepts to visual shorthand but simultaneously they're often the most inept people at that task?

    No

    One thing I do think about? How little respect and gratitude most Americans have for legit journalists who are trying to do the best job they can. Most of us are/have been horribly underpaid and in the case of the present administration, targeted specifically for abuse.

    I don't see what they have to do with syndicated political cartoonists, who are largely partisan yes-men.

    Tell you what, if Ramirez is ever brutally murdered because a mountain he labeled "DEBT" hunted him down for revenge, I'll retract my statement.

    What about if he's mauled by a fat cat wearing a top hat and monocle with "Wall Street" on the front of his tux?

    I don't quite get this. Yes, cartoonists are not really at risk in any Western industrialized nation. But this is also not where most journalists are at risk. The ability to express dissent--even dissent which is clearly partisan or ideological--without incurring governmental reprisal is also generally held to be a societal value, so I don't understand the guffawing.

    Disdain for professional journalism and journalists has clearly begun to transcend partisan lines.

    Touché, mon ami.

    It's almost like there's additional context here that you're ignoring, like it didn't start out as some grand moral pronouncement and only shifted to that line as an opportunistic and obfuscating rebuttal or something.
