Obama's Nobel Act: When cartoonists declare war

By Michael Cavna

With President Obama having returned from Europe in recent days, Comic Riffs digs out from the towering snowbanks of other stories -- from health-care reform to planet-care "reform" to Tiger Woods sports-idol reform -- to spotlight the Nobel Peace Prize.

Regardless of one's leanings as a political cartoonist, having a president pick up the Peace Prize amid the American troop increase in Afghanistan makes for one fat, juicy target.

So today, 'Riffs offers a quick gallery of cartoons on Obama as wartime Peace president, beginning with this ED STEIN cartoon.

Ready. Aim. Fodder!

I really and truly like the melting of the peace prize and forging bullets from it for Afghaniston. From one quagmire to another.
