April 15, 2006

Growing-Up-Cartoonist-scanned“Kate Palmer’s political cartoons are great—that is, if they are about someone else. At any rate, they justify a look into her life. Where did this free and caring and funny spirit come from? What was her family like? Were they also contrarians? . . . Kate Palmer is . . . what we in the South call ‘a character.’ . . . She calls herself a satirist, which she defines as a ‘professional smartass.’ Most of her subject characters would agree with that definition.”

—Richard W. Riley, former governor of South Carolina, from the Foreword
