I asked the question below around noon and quite a few responses--I also located a recent website where you can comment on the cartoon  (see below)

Has anyone seen the story or cartoon of Bush with a gun to his head, taken from this  famous Vietnam photo? I saw a report on CNN but didn't catch the cartoonists name?

Email if you have a link please.  lisa@allhatnocattle.net

The cartoon is a Ramirez cartoon in the LA Times for July 20th, and can be viewed at their web site.


Thanks for the quick and accurate reply Steve.  click the button

Two coiffed anchors on MSNBC were discussing the Ramirez cartoon, when the male co-anchor said to the female co-anchor, "That cartoon was taken from a Vietnam era cartoon, right?"  The bimbette answered "That's right.", gleefully, I might add.  MSNBC should hire people who actually have a sense of history or the sense not to make an incorrect statement concerning one of the most well known photos out of the Vietnam War.


Howdy Ladies!

I found the cartoon you requested from a link on www.mediawhoresonline.com  (another admirable site) zap to Drudge zing to The LA Times. Read the

Drudge suggests that the Secret Service may be investigating a "threat".

A "threat" to free speech, no doubt.

Enjoy the "shock and awe" of the artist with the cajones (and the paper to publish). Let freedom ring!

Keep up the good work.

Thank you so much.  We have such fabulous viewers!

When I saw the MSNBC report, those over-coiffed anchors did mention something about the Secret Service wanting to investigate but their details where vacuous. I guess editorial cartoonists are on the Homeland Security  list.

Uh oh.

LA Times stirs up controversy with cartoon
Infoshop News - 7-21-03
Has the LA Times taken a bold step for freedom of speech, by printing a cartoon in their Sunday depicting the assassination of Emperor Bush? Will the incompetent goons at the Secret Service get all bent out of shape over this editorial cartoon? What does it say about the deepening crises surrounding George W. Bush when major American newspapers are boldly dissing the president?

A Polish artist who exhibited an image of a man's penis attached to a cross broke the Roman Catholic country's law on blasphemy, a court has ruled, according to Poland's top-selling daily on Saturday.
