The Council Has Spoken - 18 April 2008

The posts have been reviewed and the votes for this weeks submissions for the best posts have been tallied by the Watcher. And the winners are:


This weeks winner in the Council category was my post, The Next Moves In An Existential Chess Match, on the existential threat posed by Iran's theocracy. I examined the current situation and suggested what our next moves should be in regards to Iran's nuclear program and their continuing deadly interference in Iraq. My votes for first and second place ending up taking second and third place. Our newest council member, Hillbilly White Trash, came in second place with his excellent fisk of a British loon in Does America Need a New Enemy? One Brit Thinks So.... Coming in third place was Rightwing Nuthouse's insigtful post on elitism in politics, from our founding fathers throuh Obama, Elitism and the Elitist Elites Who Think They're the Elite.

In the Non-Council category, there was a tie broken by the Watcher. It's the "White" Church that Obama's Talking About by Baldilocks took first place while Zombie Chronicles the Olympic Torch Relay in SF by Pajamas Media took second. My submission, which I highly recommend, was The War of Ideas by Zhudi Jasser writing at Family Security Matters. He discussed the very important topic of Wahhbi Islam in American and has links in his article to an incredibly informative debate in which he engaged with a Salafi Imam.
