TOON-OP

The best medicine

Cartoonists Mike Lester, Tony Auth and Rob Rogers give it their best shots on the healthcare debate.

July 26, 2009|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist at the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky. His cartoons also appear in USA Today.

Cartoonists invoked plenty of inflamed invective to inform a healthy debate on the healthcare reform battle. Mike Lester's O.R. Obama is no smooth operator. (Scalpel! Clamp! Jackhammer!) Tony Auth's elephant in the nursery had a sick, infanticide fantasy. (Mask! Gloves! Pillow!) And Rob Rogers' throwback family displayed one giant misplaced leap of faith in mankind. (Hope! Change! Disappointment!)
