Ted Cruz's marathon speech: Cartoons of the day

Editorial Cartoon- This cartoon is showing the lengths to which Ted Cruz will go in order to get rid of Obamacare. The visual symbol, the mushroom cloud from a nuclear bomb, is indicative of pure destruction. The cloud is an analogy, and is effective in its message to the audience. The cartoon is suggesting that Cruz will go further than necessary to meet his goals and potentially leave irreparable destruction in his wake.
