Vote Now: Which Nancy Pelosi Cartoon Holds Water?
Can House Speaker Nancy Pelosi weather the current Beltway scrutiny? We know not, perhaps because we're overly focused on a more immediate question:
Can Madam Speaker withstand the slings, arrows and Sharpies of a horde of cartoonists?
Dick Cheney's re-emergence has provided some fodder recently, but most editorial cartoonists have been hungry for fresh fare since, oh, at least the last time Michael Steele tried to drop some dope quasi-street rhymes on his illin' political foes, dawg. But now that a "new" face -- re: not from within the previous administration -- can literally be drawn into the Gitmo waterboarding controversy, it's open season.
For any cartoonist who thinks Pelosi is lying, the most obvious pun is a growing-nosed "Pelosi-o." I've seen several versions of this, but Arizona's STEVE BENSON executes it most artfully, methinks.
This week, four other Pelosi 'toons have especially caught my eye, too. Here are my Top Five. Feel free to vote for your favorite -- and to throw up a link to any others you like.
