TOON-OP

Hocus-pocus politics

Cartoonists Matt Davies, Gary Varvel and Joel Pett conjure up some commentary on this year's elections.

November 08, 2009|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His cartoons also appear in USA Today.

The commentary crowd consulted crystal balls, Tarot cards, voodoo dolls and psychics to divine meaning from the off-off-year elections. Matt Davies read the "tea party" leaves and dogged the GOP for its grand old tricks. Gary Varvel gazed into his magic 8-ball and saw B-ball outpolling democracy. I tried to take the long view on the president's misfortune tellers, but somehow I doubt anyone's listening. Oh well. Back to the old Ouija board.

-- Joel Pett
