TO THE TUNE of the classic Sondheim song, “Send in the Clowns”:

Isn’t this rich?
Aren’t they a pair?
Bill here, so fast, on tarmacs
She in mid-err
Send in the clowns

Is this a breach?
Does Hill deceive?
She who keeps emailing around
Do we believe?
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns

Comey has ended this whole big process
Finally knowing Hill was “extremely careless”
She assumes her same crouch again with her usual flair
Pants suit on fire?
No crime is there

Don’t you love farce?
“Slack space” in play
FBI assures Justice is served
Without delay
But where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns
Quick, send in the clowns

Don’t bother, they’re here.

And indeed they are. Here is how a dozen of America’s cartoonists are responding to the FBI’s closely scrutinized report this week on Hillary Clinton’s email practices while secretary of State:
