Surge protectors

February 04, 2007|-- Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

PC doesn't stand for "political cartoonist," and we're not much for political correctness. We unapologetically employ plenty of grossly unfair stereotypes. For example, I routinely generalize in this space about ... political cartoonists! When I wrote that "we" scorned President Bush's surge plan, of course I meant "most-of-we." As you see, there are a number of "we" who have quite different takes: John Trever strikes a blow against Democrat windbags. Chip Bok sympathizes with soldiers caught in a bind. And (to paraphrase Robert F. Kennedy paraphrasing George Bernard Shaw) Glenn McCoy looks at the Democrats as they are and asks "Why?," while Bob Gorrell dreams of what might be and wonders "Whyknot?"
