#10 - Abdelbaset al-Megrahi arrives in Libya to great fanfare, 8/25/2009
Yeah, meting out justice based on the honor system really isn't such a great idea, Kenny.
#9 - The world fiddles while Iran prepares to burn, 11/22/2009
Countries as mammals, reptiles and spineless inveterbrae--old-fashioned and clich'ed, but highly enjoyable to draw.
#8 - HRW changes tack... kind of, 8/13/2009
Bonus: the guy on the left side of the Human Rights Watch group was later found to be a collector of Nazi memorabilia. What an innocuous hobby.
#7 - Terrorists attempt a horseback attack, 6/9/2009
You try that tactic against the Israelis With Infrared Missiles, you deserve everything you get.
#6 - The UN once again calls for Hizbullah to disarm, 10/23/2009
Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus...
#5 - Unrest among hesder yeshivas following the ouster of Har Bracha, 12/16/2009
Although the hornets eventually settled down, this visual metaphor was too good to pass up--and got pulled off pleasingly.
#4 - The US decries Israeli settlement expansion, 7/2/2009
Putting the settlers in the heroic Iwo Jima pose was a stroke of inspiration.
#3 - Yom Kippur 5770, 9/24/2009
With Israeli politicians (and Bernie Madoff), you've got to laugh if you don't want to cry... Right to left, fraud, sexual misconduct, embezzlement, embezzlement, and various financial improprieties.
#2 - Bernie gets 150 years in the slammer--good riddance!, 6/30/2009
I love this one so much.
#1 - The least-worked-for award of the year, 10/11/2009
Burn, baby, burn!
