The Week That Was...In Political Cartoons

Our Dear Leader barely took a moment to recover from his unproductive visit by China’s Dear Leader Hu—the clear point of which was summed up perfectly by Dana Summers:

Instead Leader Obama proceeded headlong into giving his annual address on how to ensure the bankruptcy and collapse of the Union.

As cries across the media and left-wing blogosphere laughably, discreditedly continued to call out for a New Tone in the political discourse:

(Chuck Asay at Townhall)

Congress got the brilliant bipartisan idea to hold a State of the Union Prom Night Charade:

(Chip Bok at Townhall)

Photo Angle #2:

(Michael Ramirez at National Review)

Two words summed up the State of the Union address. (Well, three, but I could find no political cartoon about salmon.) One, “investment”:

(Mike Lester at Townhall)

And two, Sputnik:

(Nate Beeler at Townhall)

So the American people were left with this:

(Steve Kelley at Townhall)

While the media cheered and began using “Obama” and “Reaganesque” in the same sickening sentence:

(Glenn McCoy at Townhall)

And so the US Congress rolls us blithely along into the future we so richly deserve:

(Lisa Benson at Townhall)

And Obama plays golf while Tunsia falls and Egypt burns:

(Bob Gorrell at Townhall)

Or for a closeup view, check these excellent Egyptian toons by Sherif Arafa, and introduced to a US audience by Daryl Cagle’s superb political cartoon blog.

On the bright side, MSNBC now has one less ranter, as Keith Olbermann bid a curt adieu to his viewers and staff and launched his FOKnewschannel on Twitter. What a winner that guy is!

(Brian Fairrington at Townhall)

And that’s the way it was. Better luck this week, America.
