News like McCain's pick of Sarah Palin is almost always fun. It demands a quick reaction, unencumbered by the study of policy positions and candidate white papers, unlike, say, cartooning global trade. In the case of a relatively unknown political figure, it also requires a rapid caricature solution. Below are a few sketches from my notebook, including three cartoon ideas I discarded, followed by the finished drawing I finally decided to draw for the editorial page.

A quick sketch of the pro-drilling guv:

The imagined reaction of the ever-accommodating Mitt:

A campaign in need of some vitality:

A fairy tale setup begging to be tried:

And finally, the winner:
