Ask students what they notice about the cartoon and what point they think Mike Luckovich, the cartoonist, is making about presidential debates. Is it a criticism?

Luckovich published this cartoon before the first debate had even taken place. At a guess, who does Luckovich hold responsible for the zinger-level of the debates he expects?

Ask students to discuss whether, on the basis of last night’s debate, they think Luckovich had a crystal ball.
