Graphic Representation: The Masterdebaters

We confess that we didn’t watch last night’s debates, and everything we’ve seen and read today confirms that we didn’t miss much, given that the outcome was precisely what we’d expected.

So we’ll let some of America’s few remaining editorial cartoonists sum up.

We begin with the editorial cartoonist of the Kansas City Star:

Lee Judge: The decisive debate

And from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Mike Luckovich: Fright night


Next, the editorial cartoonist of the Columbus Dispatch:

Nate Beeler: Growing Ulcer

And from the Indianapolis Star:

Gary Varvel: Political messaging

Next, from the Chattanooga Times Free Press:

Clay Bennett: The Debate

Finally, from the Miami Herald:

Jim Morin: Whatever you say . . .

And a bonus. . .

Steven Colbert covers the debate.

From The Late Show with Stephen Colbert:

The First Presidential Debate Lives Up To the Hype

Program notes:

At the first debate the candidates delivered plenty of barbs, insults, and one of the biggest lies of the entire campaign.
