TOON-OP

Outside the box

January 27, 2008|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

An easy week for no-brainer cartoons. Monday: Dreamy remembrance of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Tuesday: No cartoon because of King holiday. Wednesday: A Democratic debate required dropping horse-racing cliche in favor of prizefighting cliche. Thursday: Changed down-and-dirty politics to mud wrestling, with a Bill Clinton tag-team reference. Friday: Pick a scary economic metaphor. Some transcended the obvious. Signe Wilkinson jumped to a conclusion about Social Security, Rob Rogers broadened the picture, and Nick Anderson dissected conventional "dismal science" wisdom. Darn him. I had that same idea, but I was saving it.
