Outside looking in

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

While stateside cartoonists focused on nonpolitical topics, our overseas counterparts kept an eye on the presidential horse race. Heng Kim Song in Singapore ground out some pre-conventional wisdom about self-destructive Democrats. Heiko Sakurai in Germany analyzed Hillary Clinton's strategy. And Wolfgang Ammer in Austria delivered a priceless visual gem. Impressive, but I don't really trust those foreign cartoonists because I never see them wearing flag lapel pins.
