Cartoon of the Day: 'How do you solve a problem like Marion?'

By Michael Cavna

Accuse us of being Washington-centric today, but really: Isn't Marion Barry of national interest -- if not national amusement for some, alas -- at this point?

And so it is, with the D.C. Council's censuring of HIzzoner in recent days, that Nate Beeler's commentary is 'Riffs Cartoon Pick of the Day:

Have a strong reaction to this cartoon? Then feel free to fire away.

And as long as we're spotlighting Mr. Beeler today: For your perusing pleasure, we point to this recent interview with the Washington Examiner cartoonist by comicsDC blogger Mike Rhode, who has recently begun columnizing for Washington's City Paper. Worth checking out.

Columnizing? Is that even a verb? It sounds so ... sleezy.

"How do you solve a problem like Marion?"

Somehow, I'm having a problem equating Marion Barry to the musical adaptation of the story of an Austrian novitiate.

unfortunately you can substitue the names of any number of public officials for "Marion Barry", and use the same cartoon.
