Editorial Cartoons: Taking on the Party of Nyet, the heavy-handed Chinese government and North Korea’s heir to L'il Kim
As the somewhat tortured maxim goes, it's a more global world now, and cartoonists connect the dots, lines and brushstrokes to superpowers and the super-powerless alike. Pat Bagley calls out the Party of Nyet for nuking nonproliferation talks. Mike Keefe evokes the noble protesters and heavy artillery of Tiananmen as he squarely treads on the heavy-handed Chinese government. And after a provocative airstrike, the heir to L'il Kim surveys Bruce Plante's desolate North Korean landscape. Well done, my friends, you have used your super powers wisely!
