TOON-OP

Examining ex-executives

Cartoonists Rob Rogers, Scott Stantis and Tony Auth bring back some former residents of the White House to make a point.

November 01, 2009|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for the Lexington Herald-Leader. His cartoons also appear in USA Today.

Whether expressing ex parte advice, exposing excesses or just exorcising exasperation, who better for editorialists to exploit than ex-presidents? Rob Rogers' Dick Cheney exhaustively exercises external pressure. Scott Stantis exhumes an (expletive deleted) ex-prez to excoriate Barack Obama. And Tony Auth's art exhibits Lyndon Johnson in an exhortation to exercise extreme caution.
