1. I'm torn. Occupy SC is a hoot

but the MLK one is truly poignant.

2. Believe it or not...

The Newt one is from a generally more conservative cartoonist in a conservative paper...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augusta_Chronicle - I like his style though sometimes - it's very acerbic and it kinda punches through the din. He cuts both ways.

The MLK one is good.

I thought the best of the batch was the GOP Club one with the fat Newt and the protestors. Kinda captured the zeitgeist of the "split" in the GOP.

Have a good weekend Ruby!

9. Ben Sargent

Ben Sargent (born November 26, 1948) is an American editorial cartoonist. He began drawing editorial cartoons for the Austin American-Statesman in 1974 and retired in 2009.[1] His cartoons are also distributed nationally by Universal Press Syndicate.

He was born in Amarillo, Texas, into a newspaper family. He learned the printing trade from age twelve and started working for the local daily as a proof runner at fourteen. He attended Amarillo College and received a Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1970.

Sargent won the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning in 1982. He has also received awards from Women in Communications, Inc., Common Cause of Texas, and Cox Newspapers.

-----

In a profile published in the January 2005 issue of The Good Life magazine, Sargent stated, "As a newspaper journalist, you're professionally obligated to be fair, accurate, complete and balanced. But there are two pages in the back of the paper where we're obligated to be fair, accurate and completeóbut we don't have to be 'balanced.' I'm not a pollster. To me, you're obligated as an opinion journalist to express your views no matter what the politics of the day. If you don't, then people will say, 'Why should I read what this guy's saying? He doesn't even know where he stands?' That makes your position as an opinion journalist kind of useless."
