US election cartoons the day after…

…but drawn the day before.
Always an interesting situation that, the day before an election when you need to do something about the election, but can’t risk predicting the outcome.

The Times’ Peter Brookes has perhaps the most obvious example. Mentioning both Obama and McCain – but in a way that would work whatever the result.

Garland in the Telegraph on the other hand, focuses on the end of the Bush regime – as do the rest in the major papers.

Steve Bell in the Guardian – characteristically surreal.

My personal favourite though, is Dave Brown’s Bush cartoon in the Indy. Very funny, and a brutally frustrating reminder that it’s not over quite yet.
