The Week in Editorial Cartoons, Part II – Meet Newt “I Love Monogamy” Gingrich

1. Image Shack – Luckovich and others.

2. 20 Cartoons in THIS ALBUM…

3. Matt Bors Announcement – Daily Kos Comics…



This weekly diary takes a look at the past week’s important news stories from the perspective of our leading editorial cartoonists (including a few foreign ones) with analysis and commentary added in by me.

When evaluating a cartoon, ask yourself these questions:

1. Does a cartoon add to my existing knowledge base and help crystallize my thinking about the issue depicted?

2. Does the cartoonist have any obvious biases that distort reality?

3. Is the cartoonist reflecting prevailing public opinion or trying to shape it?

The answers will help determine the effectiveness of the cartoonist’s message.

A Winning 2012 GOP Slogan

Earlier today, the brains at the Republican National Committee announced a new slogan for the 2012 Elections.  Spread the word.  We love political suicides.

Kill Granny, End Medicare, Vote Republican in 2012.
