What Political Cartoonists Thought of Santorum

After much hand-wringing among Republicans anxious to end their primary blood bath, presidential candidateRick Santorum has finally decided to suspend his campaign. Facing a potentially embarrassing loss in his home state of Pennsylvania, Santorum getting out of the race now makes a clear path for Mitt Romney to become the party’s nominee, bounced checks from Newt Gingrich not withstanding.

This has been an exciting race, and much like the Hillary/Obama primary back in 2008, cartoonists weighed in with an onslaught of terrific cartoons. You can view our complete collection of Rick Santorum cartoons here, but here are a handful I thought were cool…
