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.
