Watcher's Council Results, 5/30/08

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

We had a tie in the Council catagory this week, as is our custom, the Watcher broke the tie to choose this week's winner, Why Jews Are Right To Suspect Obama's Advisers by Bookworm Room, a nifty critique of Obama's close associates, who all seem to have a leetle problem with Jews and Israel in common.

In second place was Dear Mr Hoyt by Soccer Dad, a fine response to some biased bilge in the New York Times on Israel in the form of a letter to the Ombudsman that doubtless will remain unanswered.

Also getting votes were Strange Device by the Glittering Eye, In Which It Gets Worse by Done With Mirrors, Peacekeepers Raping Children... Again at Cheat Seeking Missiles and Will History Redeem President Bush? at The Colossus of Rhodey.

In the non-Council category, the winner was Deep Thoughts with Biggie Smalls by Kaboom: A Soldier's War Journal, a hilarious portrait of an Iraqi translator.

Second place was a tie between Return to Sender by Iowahawk, a funny parody of a congressional career and my own favorite, Over Red Coffee Cans and Cigarettes by The Paragraph Farmer, some real Brooklyn wisdom on appeasement, schmucks and mensches.

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