There should be 49 candidates per tab, not 50, so they all appear on the first page when the intro is added.

Any joke about the PALCB gets a vote from me...

The politics tab doesn't know funny, just hate.

Oh come on, anti-cemetism. that was funny.

This list is a clear sign that the Politics tab needs new Modmins.

Thanks for the spoiler!

anti-cementism got a distinct chuckle from me.

This.

Seriously it's more about who has the most trollerific headline rather than actual political news.
 
2010-12-28 07:13:07 PM
Not shocking at all that the Palin-American headline leads voting right now.

Headline of the Year candidate: VA. A.G. resists probing of major donor

http://www.fark.com/cgi/comments.pl?IDLink=5317607


Tee hee.
 
2010-12-28 07:27:11 PM
Surprised there were any funny on this tab.

Sadly, lying bullshiat headlines far outnumbered any funny ones this year.
 
2010-12-28 07:37:02 PM
Lawmakers vote to deny former Gov. Rod Blagojevich an official portrait, finally laying to rest any claims that he was being framed

I laughed way, way too hard at this one.
 
2010-12-28 07:38:39 PM
Headline of the Year candidate: With Brown's victory, odds of health care reform have been downgraded to somewhere between "Cubs win World Series" and "Submitter gets a girlfriend"

http://www.fark.com/cgi/comments.pl?IDLink=4952800


Hilarious in retrospect.

Man On Fire: not a lot of funny this year.


Because the secret to getting a green on the Politics tab seems to be trolling as hard as you can.
 
2010-12-28 07:53:02 PM
There have been many headlines this year which have made me actually laugh out loud at work.

None of them are represented here. Why do I feel like the funniest headlines are the equivalent of 3rd party candidates and I'm being forced to pick between W and Kerry again?
 
2010-12-28 07:56:17 PM
You better check yourself before you wreck yourself.
 
2010-12-28 08:07:07 PM
But most of these are not the best headlines from 2010.
 
2010-12-28 08:07:34 PM
I am shocked and alarmed that "Mitt Romney has 100 problems" didn't make the list.
 
2010-12-28 08:10:22 PM
I loved that one that ended, "suck it, libs." Anyone remember that one? It was priceless.
 
2010-12-28 08:18:37 PM
Politics aren't funny. Just very, very sad.

i was thinking there should be 57. One for each state.

u mad?

Good. It perfectly points out lefty vitriol and misogyny.
 
2010-12-28 09:24:24 PM
I refuse to vote for any of the options listed. All of the ideas are the same. They all suck.

/So vote Republican

This. That was just sad.
 
2010-12-28 09:27:01 PM
Hey!! A few of those are mine!
 
2010-12-28 09:30:15 PM
I'm proudly stating I'm voting for the independent headline! Oh wait, there aren't any. Never mind.
 
2010-12-28 09:32:18 PM
I avoided voting for any headline that opted for intentionally inflammatory partisanship instead of actual humor. Unfortunately, this eliminated 80 to 90% of the candidates.

Let's not start sucking each other's dicks just yet.

no.
 
2010-12-28 09:59:17 PM
Interesting how the majority of comments so far are simply complaining about the nominees. This is obviously a sign that the majority of farker's have better taste and higher sensibility than you do.

images.wikia.com

These submissions are as unworthy for nomination as the Prime Minister of Sebia 6 in Star Trek season 3 episode 4, "The Problem with Pantalone"
 
2010-12-28 10:00:45 PM
I'm having trouble finding the thread, but I'm disappointed at the lack of the headline about Palin where the submitter intentionally triggered the biatch and coont filters with his word choices ("[something]biatchanges" and "optimistic until"). Sure, attacking Palin is going for low-hanging fruit, but his filter use was very clever.
 
2010-12-28 10:08:31 PM
"Prop 19 puffs, puffs, doesn't pass"

this one still makes me laugh
 
2010-12-28 10:22:23 PM
Found it
 
2010-12-28 10:23:41 PM
I cannot believe those are the best ones of the year. They all sucked. Only one of them even got a mild smile out of me.

I don't think its because they were the best, but rather they were the least trolling/spiteful on this tab. So, calling them best isn't the right way. It should be called the ones that sucked less.

indylaw: Let's not start sucking each other's dicks just yet.

All the nominated threads: I submitted cleverer headlines.

The Pulp Fiction DADT headline, however, was pure class. I couldn't have come up with something so witty unless I had specifically watched the film that day. The day they build a statue to Fark, the hairs on the squirrel scrotum should be a cursive script of that headline.
