Sunday morning toons: Special Unity Edition

Let's start with Daryl Cagle's round-up, where Hillary's non-concession Wednesday was just coming onto the radar screen, and her full-throated endorsement yesterday happened too late to get toon coverage (even if it fit with the preferred narrative, which--as we'll probably see next week--it doesn't). I've had about all the Hillary-bashing I care for (this doesn't count--I was bashing her campaign, not her), so I'm going to skip over most of the Hillary-centered cartoons this week.

Except for this one by Mike Lester. And this one by R. J. Matson. Just those two.

p3 Picks of the Week (Non-Clinton Bashing Category): Mike Keefe, John Darkow, Eric Allie, Gary McCoy, Dick Locher, and Cal Grondahl.

The p3 Distinguished Recognition for Recognizing Distinguished Service goes to Joe Heller.

The p3 Medal of Freedom goes to Scott Stantis and Matt Davies.

Ann Telnaes reflects upon the joy of being Dick Cheney.

Opus makes one teeny mistake, and suddenly everyone's all over him. Hey, it could happen to anyone--including, it seems, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

The K Chronicles looks at that big To-Do list.

Resident Expert John Hodgman is a p3 favorite (see here, here,and here, among other mentions). Last week NYTimes readers were treated to an review essay by Hodgman on Marvel and DC comic giant Jack "King" Kirby, the man who gave us, among other things, the word "Thraaaa-kow!" as an onomotpoetic sound-effect.

p3 Bonus Toon: Jesse Springer searches for the up-side of a present Oregon will be getting from the Aloha State (click to enlarge):
