Speaking of politics

As President Obama addressed the bigs (wigs, shots, cheeses, enchiladas), cartoonists communicated to the little people, the rankled and filed, the unwashed and unhappy masses with newsprint on their ever-pointing fingers. Steve Sack hung his art in a largely polarized gallery of the small-minded. Tom Toles’ big-budget big-screen patrons opted for less-than-optimal optometrics. And I spoke freely about the injudicious branch and big-dollar elections -- corporate dollars can never get too big to flail against.

Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky. His cartoons also appear in USA Today.
