For the second year running, Ben Garrison takes this category, with 37% of the vote (a full 50%, actually, if you count the votes for his runner-up cartoon) going to his grotesque hatred of Hillary Clinton.

34% of the vote means congratulations to Mike Lester, who apparently imagines that if you're a "good guy" and you have a gun, the gun provides a force field, and also that Muslims attending Friday Prayer should do so with machine guns hidden under their clothing.

I am struggling to decide whether AF Branco, with 37%, actually means this woman to be unattractive or if that's just how he draws people. Either way, there are enough layers of misogyny here that I'd hit the character limit just listing them.

Laziest Non-Gorrell Cartoon

There was a lot of competition in this category this year, and yet Gary McCoy managed to pull 42% (and Mike Ramirez, below, an additional 24%) with this "splatter tool and scribble" tribute to the thousands of doctors and nurses who have selflessly defended women's reproductive rights over the last 46 years. (That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.)

The Galatianman Award for Special Achievement in Ignoring Jesus

Man, Branco's really racking up the wins this year. It's almost as if he's a terrible, terrible cartoonist. Just terrible.

2019 galatianman1.png

AF Branco Knows A Cuss Lifetime Achievement Award

And because he's a terrible cartoonist, in addition to his five category wins, Branco also takes home the AF Branco Knows A Cuss Lifetime Achievement Award for his tireless pursuit of letting us all know that Adam Schiff's last name kind of sounds like "shit".

Thanks, everybody!
