Our holiday gift to you: Sunday's editorial cartoons today

The current Congress may look, walk and quack like a mallard, but it hasn't ducked the issues, so cartoonists have been anything but lame. Ed Stein sought higher ground on which to plant the rainbow flag (until death do you part, indeed). Jimmy Margulies’ dome-headed pachyderm was bilingual, but not bipartisan, so bye-bye immigration reform. And Nate Beeler hung some missile-toe, puckered up and kissed off unclear objections to nuclear arms control.
