Debt, debt debt! This week’s news has been dominated by the inability of Obama and Republicans to agree on a deal that would allow the debt ceiling to be raised. We also had some guy named Murdoch dealing with a horrible phone-hacking scandal that led to the shuttering of one of England’s most popular newspapers, and continues to threaten the titan’s media empire. All while Atlantis circles the Earth and finishes its mission at the International Space Station, and prepares to bring an end to the 30-year space shuttle program.
Phew! Another busy news week. Check out our Week in Review cartoon slideshow to see the best political cartoons of the week.
