Abramoff Seeking Editorial Cartoons

The January 21 entry of Daryl Cagle's blog (scroll down) has an interesting mini-essay about celebrities seeking out originals of editorial cartoons featuring themselves, sparked by news that Jack Abramoff is looking to buy a few editorial cartoons about his own recent plight. It's fascinating in that Cagle links it to influence peddling. Most takes on this practice I've seen stay with the individual cartoonist and whether or not he or she wishes to profit by doing business with a politician or figure they don't like, or allow them to kind of reduce the effectiveness of the cartoon by being in on the joke.
