PUK AWARD SEMI-FINALISTS

Home - by - January 13, 2012 - 22:50 America/New_York - 48 Comments

Yowsa, what a field this year. This is going to be tough for this year’s judge. But it’s also going to be tough on the artists, because this year we have one of the sharpest eyes in the biz. As if her resume is not already impressive, I am here to inform you that this year’s judge could easily be an art director for any agency out there. Trust me, I’ve been in the business for decades and she’s one of best Ive ever worked with.

This year’s PUK award  judge for most outstanding achievement in visual agitprop is Pamela Geller. Good luck to these semi-finalists!

    Ho-ly Crap! No way could I choose one over any other on this; can’t we just declare “everyone a winner” and issue a progressive trophy for all?

    Good luck to the judge on this, Pamela will make the right choice: good call Mr. Hat

    I like them all, but if I had to choose, I’d pick Maksim’s Runaways from the Liberal Plantation poster. Not only is it topical, it is also true.

    My second choice is Wolverine’s Wrong Way Economy.

    Thanks to the nominees and to the nominators for bringing us these truths about Obama.

    Congratulations to all of the nominees. There isn’t one of them that I would not consider as “the best”. The problem is, we all believe in individual excellence and achievement so their must be a “best”, even though it is a subjective selection. We are trusting in Pamela, as the judge, to make that decision – one I would find difficult at best!!

    Good luck to all!

    I don’t think furhat can be beat in this area. Some are better at drawing, but for tear squirting bullshit, he is a true master.

    I had to stop looking at the one where Obama is blocking out Jesus.

    I laughed so long my ass was starting was staring to hurt.

    Yea! I think I will go has that checked out!

    These are all good. My favorite is the Obama green pea soup because I hate peas and would be afraid if they had their way I’d have to eat them as well as brussel sprouts, lima beans etc. Because these would be the only things we could eat along with tree bark just like the North Koreans. Nobama 2012! We’re all kulaks now!

    Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

    “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

    but if i had to pick one that summed up obama it would be wolverine with obama sticking his hand out in front of Christ.
