Perhaps no political cartoonist has so thoroughly deconstructed and destroyed Mitt Romney this election cycle than the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Pulitzer-Prize-winning cartoonist, Mike Luckovich.

This afternoon, I emailed Luckovich for permission to share his utterly brilliant deconstructions of Mitt Romney with our site. He responded, "Please feel free...I probably go to Daily Kos 50 times a day. I love your site."

When you see his cartoons, you'll readily see why, for with stunning simplicity and artistry, they pierce the defective heart of Romney's postures and positions in incomparable ways.

With the election only a sunrise away, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite Luckovich creations over the past month. Choosing was extremely difficult, and I highly recommend visiting his site at the AJC to see all of his work.  


"Growing, growing" - October 17

"Binders of Women" - October 18

"The great debate" - October 4

"Story time" - October 12

As the election draws near, let us celebrate (and disseminate) these images. For in doing so, we also celebrate one of our country's best political cartoonists using his talents for good.

Again, you can see much more of Mike Luckovich's work housed at his AJC site.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
