Welcome to the 1st Semi-Regular Macaca Awards! I’ll borrow the introduction from my collaborator, the handsome and talented Tengrain of Mock, Paper, Scissors:
It seems so long ago that George Allen uttered the words that moved a generation (and sank his political career), and forever seared the word Macaca into our collective brain.
And so we honor all that is appalling in American Politics with the First Semi-Regular Macaca Awards.
Nightly, starting tomorrow night and concluding on Election Eve, you will be able to vote for the biggest Macaca in different categories. Nonnie and Tengrain will announce the winners on Election Eve, so this is democracy in action! Everyone is eligible to vote, no Arizonastan Juan Crow laws here, fellow citizens!

And now, for the first category and the nominees…
For Outstanding Achievement in Grifting, the nominees are:
Original DVD cover
Princess Sarah Palin, who lost a Vice Presidential big, but won a brand new wardrobe and has gone on to dupe stupid people out of their money and make herself a millionaire.
Joe Miller, he’s a hypocrite and a liar. Is it any wonder Princess Sarah endorsed him?
Christine O’Donnell, who can’t field-dress a moose, but she can insert a human brain into a mouse, all while paying her rent and personal expenses with campaign funds.
