TOON-OP

Black and white

January 20, 2008|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

As pundits pondered gender and color, and Democratic kingmakers evoked the legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., cartoonists raced to make sure our minority voices were heard. Well, seen. Many caricatured the exchange between the Clinton and Obama camps as scurrilous mudslinging or low blows to the memory of the civil rights leader. Jack Ohman's ever-effective visual style was evocative, even as he took uncivil liberties with a famous speech. Signe Wilkinson managed a bemused, detached African American worldview, pretty good for a white chick. And Rob Rogers drew up a few thousand reasons why even a big-tent debate needs to be widened.
