OBAMACARE: The 10 must-see cartoons that vent their spleen
With the House having passed the historic/controversial/bitter-feudin' health-care reform bill mere hours ago, we pause this morning to cull Ten Cartoons That Especially Stood Out in the run-up to the vote.
From Obama to Boehner, Pelosi to McConnell, the ripe cartoon targets were plentiful. Many political cartoons simply reflected the heightened sense of the standoff, but gratefully, most of these cartoonists -- on either side of the issue -- seemed to choose their bull's-eye carefully before letting go the bow. (In very recent days, curiously, somewhat more cartoons were trained on Democratic bull's-eyes compared with at GOP backs -- we'll see if that balance changes in the days ahead.)
So here they are: Ten Cartoons That Especially Caught Our (Bull's) Eye. If you've got others -- on either side of the issue -- then fire away and lend us your links.
