Political Cartoon Gallery: From Sotomayor to Cyber-Kim

By Michael Cavna

North Korean cyber warfare, Jong-Il 2.0 style. General Motors's financial "return." And entire days of Sonia Sotomayor hearings, from soup to nunchuks. Each can spark its own form of trepidation. And, fortunately, its own fertile humor.

Here are five of this Riffster's fave political cartoons in recent days. They make for One Funny Gallery. Below, you're invited to vote for your favorite.

#3, love watching the Janus faced Hippo-Crits pandering to the base, and the other minorities. You'd think they'd stop trying to pry the right foot out of their mouth with the left foot, but it is fun to watch.

If these were the best of the lot, then it must have been a bad day for cartooning. None of them is particularly funny, and only two (Sheneman & Thompson) are on-target politically. Luckovich is uncharacteristically poor, perhaps he was having a "bad hair day".

The only reason I voted for Sheneman over Thompson is that I happen to prefer pen & ink (black & white) on the editorial page (rather than airbrushed color).
