We could have separate threads for each candidate's gaffes... Bachmann, Gingrich, Santorum, Romney, RON PAUL, and... uh... uh... the other one.

My favorite part of this season was either when the Republians dogpiled on "you didn't build that" or every single thing about Herman Cain.

Such a difficult choice, but I'm sort of over the the dogpile and Herman Cain still cracks me up.

I liked the part where Obama didn't have opposition in the primary and still almost lost the nomination.

Current worst moment is the documentation of a voting machine switching a vote from Obama to Romney

Can the entire GOP run be considered a worst moment or is that too vague?

This,
Between his Sim City Based Tax plan, quoting Pokemon, and other just ridiculous WTFisms associated with that campaign there is no way it was a serious attempt at being elected.

Best is yet to come. That will start around 11PM tonight. It will be the TEA-O-P butthurt that starts around that time.

There are so many of them, so delusional about Romney win that they will be in a state of utter shock starting them. Reading their comments should be the best of this election season.

My favorite part was when some yahoo claimed to have broken into PriceWaterhouseCoopers and stolen Mitt Romney's tax returns and then tried to extort a million dollars in bitcoins. Then, the night before the election, when I submitted the breaking news story about the Secret Service kicking in the door on Sept. 14th of a campaign worker from Obama's 2008 campaign named Michael Brown (heckuva job) and accusing him of being behind the plot based on a grainy picture of a cat that they found on one of the flash drives, and also on one of his computers, but the cat was really his friend's cat, and that this wasn't the first time the Secret Service had accused this guy of a crime, and the story was ignored by the wonderful modmins of Fark.com. Oh, the memories.

No thanks subby. The only part of it that mattered I completed this morning by casting my vote for my choices.

The rest of the process can go fark itself.

I see no mention of Cain's amazingly Trolleriffic response to his sexual harassment accusations: that there are probably thousands of women who aren't accusing him of harassment.

Probably. And at least a few thousand. That's like half the women in the country!

Have you seen the Actors Studio skits he did with John Oliver on the Daily Show?

Dude has some comedic timing, I'll give him that. The bit where John Oliver asks him what he'd do if aliens invaded when he was president and he gives an off-the-cuff anti-alien inspirational speech is the funniest moment from this campaign season that was actually intended to be humorous.

The best moment is almost certainly from the DNC, and while I have a hard time picking between Kerry's out-of-the-blue firebrand speech and Clinton's speech, I'm going to go with the latter.

Most Annoying Pander: Obama's Bracketology
Oh hey, what a coincidence, three of Obama's Final Four picks were in swing states.


Oh, hey, he got 2 out of the 4 correct, including swing state Ohio State.
Better than my bracket.

Yes they are quite good.

To be honest because I think hes an epic troll hes the only one of the GOPers I can listen too without wanting to throw something at the TV.

The best will be tonight when Obama trounces Romney in the popular vote. Worst will be when the republican machine in places like Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida hand the election to Romney.

"Binders full of women" was an awkward turn of phrase. "You didn't build that" was an affront to every innovator, entrepreneur, and free-thinker that made this Country great.
