"Sometimes the pen is mightier than the politician, especially when the pen is wielded by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Pat Oliphant."--Orange County Register, California
In his collection Just Say No!, Oliphant uses his artistry and wit to go after issues (including the presidential race, the recession, the Senate confirmation hearings, and the BCCI scandal) that have grabbed hold of Americans, leaving them clinging to their families, their jobs, and their savings accounts. With his little penguin, Punk, mouthing off in the corner, no individual or issue is spared from his discerning eye, unrelenting wit, and the flourish of his powerful pen.
A true egalitarian, Oliphant attacks both conservatives and liberals: "I try not to be labeled either way. I think there's enough blame to go around, and I'm an equal-opportunity cartoonist."
Pat Oliphant occupies a unique position among today's editorial cartoonists. Widely considered the dean of the profession, he is one of its sharpest, most daring practitioners. Oliphant divides his time between Santa Fe, N.M. and Washington, D.C.
