This Week in Political Cartoons – 4/8/11

It’s Friday, when we post our big, glorious slideshow recapping the week’s best political cartoons. This is a good one, covering everything from budget cuts to a possible government shutdown, as well as some great cartoons about a Koran-burning nutcase and some guy named Glenn Beck who got booted from his Fox News show.

So stop tending to your farm on Facebook for a second and take the time to check out The Week in Political Cartoons.
