Sunday morning toons: Special "Support the WGA Strike" edition

Knowing they've got the full might of the p3 machine behind them must be at least as comforting to them as the pizzas delivered to the picket lines courtesy of Eva Longoria.

I was planning an All-Strike Edition of the toon round-up for today but, as you'll see by following the link, apparently there's really only one joke about the strike, and every cartoonist in America lined up to use it this week. And none of them seemed to get the fact that there are actual food-on-the-table issues at stake in this strike--is there some long-buried feud between the WGA and the Political Cartoon Society that I haven't read about?

So the p3 Palme d'Or this week goes to Nate Beeler, for at least coming up with something that didn't hinge on the blank placard joke.

Turning back to Cagle's full round-up:

p3 Special Mention this week goes to Daryl Cagle, John Darkow, Steve Sack, Henry Payne, and Scott Stantis.

Ann Telnaes asks if the Constitution is still worth the paper it's written on.

Opus considers raging, raging against the dying of the light--and then decides, on balance, no. (Salon Premium--nonsubscribers will have to watch some ads first.)

Special p3 Bonus Toon: Jesse Springer notes the lesson to be learned from the defeat of Measure 50 last week.
