Let the Games begin

Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

Nobody loves the Olympics like cartoonists. John Trever nailed the compulsories, mocking the meddlesome host government on the medal stand. Steve Kelley scored some belittling laughs wondering about the wunderkind. And Rob Rogers skillfully skewered the Soviets, er ... Russians, for back-stabbing a former satellite. Sarcasm, criticism and scorn -- that’s the spirit, guys! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got work to do: McCain is lip-syncing Dubya’s war strategy, Obama just missed another slam-dunk and the housing market and consumer confidence are performing some spectacular synchronized plunging.
