Watcher's Council Results for 11/9/07

The Council has spoken! A complete list of results can be found at the site of our fearless leader, the infamous Watcher of Weasels

A bit late ( my apologies) but here are the results...

Once again, we had a tie this week, with the Watcher casting the deciding vote. Th eWatcher's choice and this weeks' winner is:
Big Lizards: Courts v. Terrorism = Wile E. Coyote v. Road Runner In which Daffyd ab Hugh did a nice job of examining the problems of dealing with Islamist terrorism through the court system,using the Madrid bombing trial verdicts as a takeoff point.

In second place was :

Soccer Dad: Unsex Me..Not In which Soccer Dad wrote a sterling piece dealing with the inherent contradiction of Hillary Clinton claiming to be a feminist an dseeking total equality on the one hand and playing the gender card on the other as soon as she's cornered. Appropriately, the title is a Shakespeare quote of a line spoken by Lady Macbeth!

For non-Council, the winner was Eternity Road:A Great Shifting Of The Winds By ex-Council alumnus Francis Porretto that examines how the Democrats have now become, in many ways, the party of the overdog.

In second place for non-Council, the winner was The Horserace Blog: Thompson Goes Electric a nice piece on the Thompson campaign by one of my favorite political writers, Jay Cost.

Hearty Kudos to all the winners!
