Spins on the 'axis'

Cartoonists Signe Wilkinson, Petar Pismestrovic and Pat Bagley take a look at events in North Korea, Iran and Iraq.

August 09, 2009|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

Scrap the cartoon clunkers about cash for cars, the sophomoric scribbles about Bill Clinton rescuing young women, and the mountains of (news)paperwork on healthcare and consider this triumvirate on the current state of the axis-formerly-known-as-evil. In North Korea, Signe Wilkinson takes a little shot at Kim Jong Il's stature. Petar Pismestrovic mulls Iranian mullahs and their string of electoral successes. And with U.S. troops departed from Iraq's urban areas, Pat Bagley's French, er, freedom joke is on us.
