MORE READING PICKS:
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).
