There’s a new voice in town, and it’s a colorful one, in more ways than one. The Los Angeles Times has brought former Seattle Post-Intelligencer political cartoonist David Horsey on to revive its political blog, “Top of the Ticket.” The gig started January 1, 2012, and, as expected, the liberal Horsey hasn’t pulled any punches. Recent cartoons have lambasted Republican candidates Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Jon Huntsman, not to mention the Tea Party itself. If Horsey’s square-jawed, strong-chinned caricatures look iconic or familiar to you, it’s only because he’s been in the business for over thirty years. For a great retrospective, check out his last few posts at the Post-Intelligencer site, where Horsey recaps the last three decades in text and image.
