2011 Today's Toons Favorites: Results
« on: January 22, 2012, 03:13:04 PM »
After starting with >13,000 possibilities, the 2nd annual Best Of Today's Toons is over & all the votes have been tallied. Neither hanging nor pregnant chads were encountered & Diebold equipment was not used. First, a few stats. 11 of the 35 finalists received 1st-place votes. There were 16 valid entries received & thanks to all of you who took the time to vote!! Votes were cast, in order of preference, for between 1 & 10 of the finalists. Cartoonists Michael Ramirez[6], Eric Allie(5), Glenn McCoy(3), Mike Lester(2), Glenn Foden(2), I Own The World(2) & Rick McKee(2) all had the multiple items in the finals. Wanted to publicly thank Oceander for creating the virtual trophies (like THIS) which will be sent to the top 10 finishers. The method of scoring was as follows: A 1st-place vote received 10 pts., a 2nd-place vote earned 9 pts., ..., down to a 10th-place vote which got 1 pt. And now, the results:


#35 (2 pts./0 1st-place votes):



#34 (5 pts./0 1st-place votes):



#33 (6 pts./0 1st-place votes):



#T31 (8 pts./0 1st-place votes):

You're welcome, as always, Chieftain! There should be some excellent ones around the November time frame if all goes according to plan...

Another of the 9th place winners checks in:

I'm truly honored.  We've placed the trophy on our trophy case's top shelf.  Since it's the only one there, we're especially appreciative.  Glad you're able to use our 'toons.


Many thanks,


Rich

You provide invaluable insight with your efforts Pook.  Thank you.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Well, they weren't trophy winners, but the 36 in the finals beat out over 13,000 other toons...

Hopefully, we'll do better in November ;-)
