Watcher's Council Results, 5/16/08

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 "Evolution" = "Growth" by Soccer Dad, a post I enjoyed quite a bit that exposed how the dinosaur media uses loaded terms to color what passes for straight news with its Leftist political agenda.

In second place we had a tie between Lebanon Becomes Hezbollahstan at Joshuapundit, my analysis of Hezbollah's coup d'etat and The Audacity of Newsweek by Wolf Howling, a fine piece by GW that likewise dealt with dinosaur media bias in favor of Obama.

Also getting votes were Where we went wrong by Hillbilly White Trash, and Cheat Seeking Missile's And Tango Makes 420.

I admit, I had a tough time voting for the non-Council category this week,the stuff was that good. Apparently others had the same feeling because we ended up with a tie which the Watcher broke, ruling in favor of Numb at Kaboom: A Soldier's War Journal. This was a superb piece by a serving warrior in Iraq that gives us a glimmer of what it's really like to actually be there, and it certainly got my vote.

In Second place was the no less excellent POLITICS: Yes, Experience Matters by Baseball Crank, an in-depth analysis of the qualities needed to fill the job of President of these United States...and where the present candidates fit in, or fall short.

Hearty congratulations not only to the winners, but to the rest of the entrants.
