Cartoon(s) of the Week – Mixed Week, couldn’t find it’s focus…

Whether we got caught up in Japan’s earthquake and sunami, or the ongoing activity in Wisconsin, or the emergent Republican Presidential candidates, or Qadaffi, or wondering what, if anything, Obama was doing, the week never did seem to get a strong focus in Editorial Cartoons. Here are some of the ones that stood out as I prowled around the net:

Cartoon(s) of the Week – Shouldn’t Congress Fight the NRA Instead of the President?

The Tucson tragedy brought attention once again to easily acquired assault weapons. Perhaps instead of wasting their time on repealing a health care plan which has majority support, the House could get into regulating weapons and restoring the regulations we used to have. The Cartoonists all seemed to catch on to this idea this week.
