Editorial Cartoons: The passing of election season before 2012 speculation begins
Does anyone regret the passing of election season, lament the loss of attack ads, miss mudslinging? Does anyone pine for the unkeepable promises from the unpromising keepers of democracy? Yes! Put cartoonists squarely (OK, rectangularly) in that category, along with pollsters, yakking heads and TV station accountants. Tom Toles' rundown Democratic Party took one final middle-of-the-road position. Ed Stein looked at big-dollar corporate spending with sticker shock. But Tom Meyer’s bottom line is that voters aren’t so shallow that the deep pockets always carry the day. Let the 2012 speculation begin!
