TOON-OP

Pencil-pointed view

September 16, 2007|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

Between the 9/11 anniversary, Gen. David H. Petraeus' congressional testimony and the presidential war address, it was an all-Iraq all-the-time week in toontown. The six-year remembrance, four-star witness and two-term chief exec hardly left space for barbs about Osama's beard, put-downs of the economic downturn or making a stink about Britney's lip sync. Lisa Benson hijacked unforgettable imagery to slam the judiciary. Gary Varvel drew a tantrum about Congress' treatment of the surgin' general. And Steve Sack trashed the White House's long-term strategy.

Terrorizing the courts, belittling the Congress and wasting the president. Now that's exercising freedom. Take that, evildoers!

-- Joel Pett
