Mark Sanford to Smartphones: What This Riffster Is Reading Now

Obama-swatted insects. Hoax instead of hope. Smartphone envy. And the global mourning over Neda.

Here are five editorial cartoons that top the 'Riffs Reading List for the day -- followed by my Mark Sanford Picks o' the Day. If you've got feedback or your own favorites, fire away:

'NATE BEELER' (courtesy of cagle.com)

'WALT HANDELSMAN' (courtesy of cagle.com)

'KEVIN SIERS' (courtesy of cagle.com)

'JEN SORENSEN' (courtesy of cagle.com)

'J.D. CROWE' (courtesy of cagle.com)


Didn't take long, did it? The Mark Sanford cartoons are already multiplying like "Star Trek" tribbles, Jon&Kate rumors or -- well -- political sex scandals.

This one, from TOONPOOL.com, ties in language from the Sonia Sotomayor headlines.

Elsewhere, the Albuquerque Journal's JOHN TREVER is hot on Sanford's (Appalachian) trail.

And my favorite Sanford cartoon so far: the Atlanta Journal Constitution's MIKE LUCKOVICH quickly turns around his very funny take (sure to be reprinted often in the days ahead).
