Ridiculing Obama's 'right' moves [Cartoons]

Partying shots: The Grand Old Party's wild November blowout bash may have left Barack Obama dazed, shellacked and hung over, but cartoonists are partying on, ridiculing his right moves. Mike Luckovich debased the president with baseless allegations picked up at a wild and crazy tea party. Ted Rall did the tax-cut after-math, and it added up to another not-so-subtle elbow to the president's lip. And Lisa Benson showed no seasonal goodwill, instead dancing into the night while stepping on the compromiser in chief's toes.
