Pamela Geller, this year’s judge, writes:

In a word, amazeballz.

Really great stuff. I hate that liberal feel good crap, ‘you are all winners!’, but there was more than one that deserved the crown. The importance of the message was a consideration I took into account as well.  The Meesh art was particularly biting :)…. but this is an election year and that is a fight. And I mean knock-down-drag-out-save-the-free-world fight.

In a just world, these artists/illustrators would be influencing the culture and media in a much wider, far larger national arena, but the culture is under siege given the low state of the world. These talented readers are guerrilla fighters in the information battle-space. Hey, it’s what we do. And their talents were never so desperately needed. If I had the dough I’d be running these posters on the back of Time, Newsweak, Rolling Stone etc.

Honorable mentions listed in no particular order, they could have just as easily won.  (They get a copy of my book and film, Ground Zero Mosque: Second wave of the 911 Attacks.)

    Hello, my name is Sacheen Littlefeather. I am representing Maksim, and he would like me to tell you that regretfully he cannot accept this very generous award. The reasons for this being, the treatment of trolls, by IOTW, Atlas Shrugs, and their users. I hope I have not intruded on this event, and that in the future we will meet, our hearts, and our love, with generosity. Thank you on behalf of Maksim.

    I wonder what the treatment of trolls means.

    Is Littlefeather a troll?

    Great choice by Pamela, but I’m still partial to Maksim’s “Taxes” poster. It’s the gold one with a gun pointing at you.

    Littlefeather appears to be a troll. How should she be treated?

    Maxim accepts the award, thanks IOTW and Geller

    First I’d like to apologize for the statement made by my woman friend Sacheen, and please disregard her comment. I did’nt even know she had access to the internet.

    Thank you IOTW, Pamela, and especilly all of you who support and encourage our bad behavior. And thank you Mary Jane for the nomination. I’m honored and most grateful.

    Oh and RickeyG, I can’t take credit for the graphic you mentioned, that was the ever so talented Red Square.

    For those too young to remember: Sacheen Littlefeather is a Native American activist who donned Apache dress and presented a speech on behalf of actor Marlon Brando, for his performance in The Godfather, when he boycotted the 45th Academy Awards ceremony on March 27, 1973, in protest of the treatment of Native Americans by the film industry.

    Well played, whomever posted it! Still ROFL.

    Maksim absolutely deserved it. The second I saw and read that poster I knew it was going to win.

    Of all the pieces that made it to the finals from me/OMG, I had the highest hopes for the 99% piece to make it to the end. So I’m beyond happy with the results!

    Thanks to iOTW and Pamela for this high honor :-)
