Editorial cartoons: A lesson in Pyongyang-ese, an affront to Dame Diplomatique and a scar for Obama

December 5, 2010 | 12:00 am

The globe's lone superpower (can we still call ourselves that?) may be broke, gridlocked, mired in wars and haunted by terrorists and nuke-rattling scoundrels, but there's comic relief in sight! Adam Zyglis elbowed the prez after the rebounder-in-chief was left in stitches. Ed Stein insulted the Korean peninsula's insular leader with jokes that really bombed. And Nate Beeler's Dame Diplomatique was electronically affronted like a common air traveler. Seems nothing is secret in this democracy — except, of course, campaign financing.
