Watcher's Council Results, 5/23/08

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

This week's winner was Republicans Ponder The Abyss by Wolf Howling, a fine post by GW that succinctly set out the challenges facing the GOP in the next election.

In second place we had a tie between George Bush Isolationist by Soccer Dad, a highly interesting post that compared Bush's pre-election stance on international affairs with his post-election behavior, and Seattle Times Writer Defends Hitler's Aggression! at Rhymes With Right, Greg's supeerb roasting of an Obama-ite buffoon masquerading as a journalist who attempted to tell us that th eappeasement of Hitler was 'reasonable.'

Also getting votes were Renaming the Paradigm *UPDATED* at Bookworm Room, No One Will Solve Our Energy Problems For Us at Hillbilly White Trash and Would You Buy An ObamaMobile From Tom Friedman? from right here.

In the non-Council catagory, the winner was Blog For Human Rights -- May 15th, 2008 The Whited Sepulchre which used the themes of some classic Norman Rockwell paintings to illustrate the theme.

Second place was a tie between The William Ayers Plan To Turn America's Schoolchildren Into Maoists and How Barack Obama Helped Him by Pundita, a piece which details that ex-Weatherman terrorist Bill Ayres is far from a simple professor of education and his relationship with Obama was by no means as casual as The Chosen One suggests and Dow Jones: Israel Means Business by our old friend The Elder of Ziyon. In it he looked at what those stiff-necked, troublesome Jews have accomplished economically in Israel with hardly any natural resources while hampered by having to care for thousands of mostly penniless immigrants, economic blockade and genocidal neighbors and compares that to what Iran has accomplished with its billions in oil and gas money and its other advantages.

Hearty congratulations not only to the winners, but to all the entrants.

There's currently still an open seat on the Council. If you think you measure up blog-wise, please contact the Watcher here to apply.
