Go, Look: Selection Of Post-Presidential Debate Cartoons

There is the usual category of cartoons up for those related to the first, recent presidential debate here. You can also see the article generated from the Cagle site -- I think that's how that works -- for one of the NBC sites here. Reading such posts is almost always instructive in terms of learning how that group of people process a single story in different ways. It looks like something about Big Bird was super-helpful to the cartoonists there, although there's also a lot of generic prizefighting imagery -- itself interesting in terms of prizefighting being an antiquated notion as compared to mixed martial arts contests. Then again, politics is an endeavor that relies on horse racing imagery as well.
