Top 10 editorial cartoons of 2010: We chided, cajoled, derided, mocked, parodied and needled our way through the year

December 30, 2010 | 12:20 pm

War, poverty, unemployment, foreclosures, environmental and humanitarian catastrophes, crippling division -- another difficult year in politics, another banner year for political cartoonists! From Pat Oliphant's masterful bipartisan overview to Jen Sorensen’s snarky serial sarcasm, Jack Ohman's trenchant double entendre and Tom Meyer's changing of the Golden State guard, we chided, cajoled, derided, mocked, parodied and needled our way through another year. Now bring on 2011. Where's that cartoon baby with the top hat?
