Cartoons: Cynical criticism trumps syrupy civility anytime
In editorial cartoons, cynical criticism trumps syrupy civility anytime, and the state of the union is always excellent, as long as you're getting paid to skewer it. The demand for deference went in one ear and out the other for Nate Beeler. Matt Bors decried political correctness in calls for correcting political decorum. And Signe Wilkinson slammed a posing pretender, an absent high court triumvirate and the underground uniter in chief. Don't you just love a Hollywood ending?
