The laugh trade

September 28, 2008|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

The editorial cartooning trade has its share of panicky naysayers even during good times, so suffice it to say that few of us have been putting lipstick on the bear market. Ed Stein damned the flooding of financial finaglers with bailout cash. (Heckuva job, Ed ... that picture is worth a thousand ... no, $700 billion.) Rob Rogers' spin machine revolutionized the commando in chief. And Matt Davies' weighty piece depicted the gravity of the situation. Hey Matt, what's with the anvil? Didn't those go out, like, back in the Depression?
