ANTHONY WEINER: The most eye-catching ‘Weinergate’ cartoons so far...

Now that Rep. Anthony Weiner has ‘fessed up today about his pervy form of social “networking,” Comic Riffs can say with certitude that editorial cartoonists are having a field day with the congressman’s underpants-flashing shenanigans.

Sure, the target might be like shooting kingfish in a barrel, but some satirists are hitting their marks with especial flair.

The blowdarts range from racy animations — the Taiwanese-based artists at Next Media Animation have fun with the congressman’s surname — to less-frontal approaches to the matter.

Here are some of the most eye-catching we’ve seen so far.
