A clarification and an explanation of what my job is…
I’m not a populist. I am an editorial cartoonist. My job is not to mollify or pacify you. My job is to tell the truth. My job is to analyze the news, decipher policy and expose those who are cloaked in pretension.
I’m not here to make humorous anecdotes about politics or silly superficial jokes about current events. If that’s what you want, then go to the Daily Show or Saturday Night Live.
I am an editorial cartoonist.
I am not here to entertain you. I am here to inform you.
Editorial cartooning is about making serious points about serious issues. I do not care if you agree with me or not. It is not my job to be agreeable or politically correct. It is my job to be Constitutionally correct. It is my job is to tell the truth… as I see it, and I will continue to do so.
