Welcome to the 2020 Political Cartoons Award Thread! Now with a new, less offensive name!

We had a relatively low number of nominations from the thread and wiki in 2020 (I've been gathering them, don't worry), so I am actively soliciting additional nominations. Please read the 2020 thread and share your nominations here. You don't have to nominate in every category, and comics can be nominated multiple times for one award, or in multiple categories at once.

Please nominate additional politoons! 2020 was a helluva year, there's plenty to choose from. This awards process needs your support!

Voting

On February 21 we'll close nominations and I will restructure the thread for voting, listing all currently nominated comics. Voting will be easy: just pick a single comic from each category you want to vote in.

Rules and Suggestions

  • Standard D&D rules apply.
  • Please don't quote all the images from a nomination post unless you intend to discuss all them.
  • Please do not use this thread for discussion of general political topics. Please do feel free to discuss your nominations and reasoning.
  • Please only post cartoons that were featured in the Political Cartoons thread and were published in 2020.
  • Post only one nomination post. Any future cartoon you would like to submit should be edited into that post.
  • Only submit one nomination per category.

Do you have a user account on the wiki? Due to spam, and because I have not yet had the time to update the wiki software and see if I can get some more spam prevention measures set up, user registration is currently disabled, and of course only users can edit. If you don't have an account, shoot me a PM and we'll solve it.

I hereby nominate Ben Garrison for a lifetime achievement award for his obsession with drawing Trump as super muscular when he very much is not. Also for his general insanity.

There is no water to be found anymore. All the soil has transformed into worthless shifting sand. Blowing in your eyes, blinding you. Nothing can grow anymore, except for these accursed cacti which spring up from nowhere unbidden. Even if you cut them open, there’s no water, just more sand inside, impossibly. Their only purpose is to sting you as you blunder into them while wandering through the sandstorm. You think you see a building in the distance, some shelter, any shelter, but it’s only an illusion vanishing as you get near. You can only scale hoodoos pointlessly, endlessly, never finding solace. Yelling into the wind to no one as you are pursued by a lone coyote. You are vaguely aware that eventually that coyote will be gnawing at your lifeless desiccated corpse.

Welcome to Prickly City.

The Least Concealed Bigotry: Racism category could easily be filled with nothing but Stiglich. I want to nominate this one because it actually led to newspaper editorial resignations and, probably, Stiglich getting kicked off Gocomics. (It was posted to GC, deleted, reposted, deleted again, reposted in black and white, deleted again, and a week later Stiglich was gone.)

I am having to relive 2020 through the 2020 politoons thread, so it's taking awhile. I will have the nominations ready on the 21st. My deepest apologies for the delay.

Sorry, work's been a nightmare. I hear the issue slowing nomination collection has been fixed; I will finish populating the spreadsheet and test post tomorrow night.

Sorry, it turns out the relevant bug still isn't fixed in the indexing of older threads, so I am having to go through manually. To keep me on track, I will begin listing my daily progress.
