Watcher's Council Results, 8/22/08

The Council has spoken! A complete rundown of the voting tallies is here.

And now(drum roll...) the winning entries in the Watcher's Council vote for this week are :

Among the Council members, the winner was McCainiacs thinking outside of the box by Bookworm Room a fine piece on the hoe McCain supporters outnumbered in the Bay Area are seeking to promote their cause.

In second place we had Soccer Dad for Reuters Rooters , an excellent comparison of the hypocritical reaction of groups like Reporters Without Borders to a Palestinian camera man being shot accidently in a combat zone by the IDF as opposed to silence over the shootings of journalists in Georgia by the Russian army.

Also getting votes were Joshua Pundit for Georgia's Fallout - The Good And The Bad from you know who, The Razor for Vindication and our host Wolf Howling for Life In A Socialist Nanny State: When Petty Bureaucrats Have Power Over Life And Death.

In the Non-Council category, the winner my nominee, Daniel Pipes – The West’s Islamist Infiltrators.

In second place, there was the Russia Foreign Policy Blog – The CNN Effect: A Tale of Two Wars

A shout out to GW at Wolf Howling for a superb job in hosting the Council this week. As always, congratulations not only to the winners, but to the participants.
