Overview

"You'll find . . . cartoons to cheer your heart no matter what side of the political spectrum you fall." -Doc Kirby, (AL) WTBF AM & FM

What an exciting year! The 2008 presidential campaign got off to an early start when Democratic candidate Barack Obama forced Hillary Clinton to announce her candidacy earlier than she had planned. In the Republican camp, candidates Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, and former Law and Order star Fred Thompson verbally sparred for the GOP seat. Suddam Hussein was convicted and sentenced to death by hanging. Violence in the Middle East reached new levels and subsided again to the lowest levels seen following the troop surge. There was extraordinary and escalating violence in Darfur. Gas prices and college tuition skyrocketed, while the value of the U.S. dollar plummeted. Controversy swelled over sports personalities Barry Bonds, Michael Vick, and O.J. Simpson as each struggled through convictions of wrongdoing. Immigration continued to be a hot-topic of debate as the work on the promised fence along the Mexican border continued to stall. Wildfires, droughts, earthquakes, and tsunamis fueled the increasing concerns about the threat of global warming, which reached celebrity status with Al Gore's documentary.

Provocative and controversial, this collection, edited by Charles Brooks, offers the thirty-sixth edition of the most thought-provoking editorial cartoons of the year. Showcasing a variety of viewpoints, the cartoonists satirize headline-making news that defines and shapes the world. Agree or not, these award-winning cartoons are bound to stir your own emotions and opinions, making Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year: 2008 Edition all the more enjoyable.
