Wright and wrongs

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

Like the rest of the loyal followers of Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., cartoonists spent the week giving Sen. Barack Obama's ex-preacher his Warhol quarter-hour. With the furor over the Democratic front-runner's baptism-by-ire, you'd almost think there was no war, no recession, no ... wait, Dwane Powell's cartoon makes the point so much better. Matt Davies identified a court ruling to render judgment on, and Matt Bors took pen in hand to focus on the Geneva Convention. Nice rendition, Matt, but wouldn't the Bush-Cheney crowd consider having their feet held to the fire to be torture?
