TOON-OP

Prizewinners all

Editorial cartoonists Ted Rally, Tom Toles and Matt Bors on presidential decision-making, or not.

October 18, 2009|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky. His work also appears in USA Today.

No politically tainted Nobels for cartooning, but still plenty of prize pieces. Ted Rall's drone-straddling Obama suffers from Dr. Strangelove flashbacks. Give Ted a ribbon for ribbin'. Tom Toles, who never phones it in and always captures the clever subtext, deserves the economics comics honor. And Matt Bors' long, drawn-out offering displays no patience with long, drawn-out solutions. He takes the medal for meddling with the commander in chief's mettle.
