(Tom Toles via GoComics.com)
This comic is such a great illustration of what cutting the deficit would do to the economy right now that I just had to post it. Political cartoonists take a lot of flak, and most of them do seem to be political pundits who just can't seem to fill a whole 500 word column so they just draw a picture instead, but Tom Toles demonstrates the importance of great political cartoons. They can take a very complex idea and present it clearly via metaphor. I also always enjoy his little alt-text in the lower right hand corner.
