Since we are drawing near the end of 2009 I did a review of some of the best satire headlines I wrote for The Looking Spoon over the year. I narrowed the choices down to the top 15 (out of hundreds) that either were my favorites, got tremendous response on the social networks, or both.

I hope you enjoy this, if so share it with your friends, we can all use a good laugh at the expense of the party in power. There are many more that I wanted to include but I really wanted to limit it to 15. So I’m planning on putting together a list of honorable mentions sometime next week.
