Mid-week funnies

Time again for our weekly parade of editorial cartoons from around the nation. The best way to get your news short of...um... actually reading the news?

You may not have heard of it with all the news on Iraq but global warming has officially started to displace people. Off India an island called Lohachara that used to have 10,000 residents is now permanently under water. Eight years ago the first formerly permanently above-water islands submerged in the Pacific atoll nation of Kiribati. Several low lying islands in Vanuatu (known to many Americans as the scene of a season of Survivor) have been abandoned. This is the first time in recorded history that a permanently occupied landmass has been submerged by rising oceans.

Many people have already begun questioning the President's plan to solve the Iraq situation by adding another 15% to the troops in Baghdad. Yes, that's what 20,000 works out as.



I thought this one was funny because of the comment on the right. The Republicans who altered the rules to remove power from minority faction lawmakers have suddenly found themselves the minority!
