Profiled: Matt Wuerker on cartooning in the beltway

CBS News profiled Matt Wuerker about his cartoons for Politico – the beltway newspaper.

Wuerker said he has heard from the people he satirizes. He recalled a cartoon attacking Donald Rumsfeld during the Iraq War: “I got an email from a colonel in the Pentagon who said that [Secretary Rumsfeld] had seen the cartoon and was wondering if he could have the original to hang on his wall, which just filled me with such mixed emotions. I wanted him to feel the sting of my pen. And he wanted to hang it on his wall!”

Here’s the video version of the report:
