1. Editorial cartoonists often use humor to illustrate something that they find aggravating. What point is the cartoonist making in these cartoons?

2. An editorial cartoon reflects a cartoonist’s point of view and though it generally exaggerates reality, an editorial cartoon should be based on truth or fact.  Read the "Background" below.  Do you think the cartoonist’s assertion about the hypocrisy of the elected officials' actions is accurate and/or justified? Explain your answer.
