I don’t usually read other editorial cartoonists. I don’t want to be influenced by them too much! But 2 or 3 times a month I look at some to see what topics they’ve covered, or haven’t, so I can decide what to do next, or to find out what’s important to cover, because they have tons more experience than I do.
I also don’t usually laugh at most political cartoons, but I thought this was a good clear drawing by Mr. Summers, a good punchline, with the extra bon mots of using the sock imagery, and, maybe most importantly, how I feel about Ms. Sotomayor. At least when she spoke those words, a few years ago, there was a tiny bit of racism there, you must admit.
