Watcher's Council Results

Each week, the Watcher's Council holds a contest for best post. The Council members submit a post they have written and one post by someone outside the Council for consideration. The Watcher tallies the votes and announces the winners each Friday.

There is an opening on the Council. If you would care to submit your blog for consideration, please visit the Watcher's site. You will find instructions on the right side bar for applying to join the Council.

You can find the results of the weeks voting and the Watcher's cogent commentary on the submissions here. This week's winners were:

Coming in first place this week was my post, Obama On Iran: A Broken Moral Compass, A Distorted Perception Of Reality. In it, I take Obama to task for prioritizing talks with the murderous theocracy over support for the protesters in Iran. Coming in second place, The Provocateur's Too Good To Check: How the Conservative Media Unwittingly Smeared ACORN and Handed Them a Gift. Coming in third was Soccer Dad with The njdc’s ledge.

In the Non-Council category, the winner was the greatest smackdown of a pompous fool possibly ever written, Christopher Badeaux Through the Looking Glass With Andrew Sullivan. Coming in second was the Dry Bones cartoon, Obama’s 3 AM Phone Call. And coming in a close third was my offering this week, scientist Roger Pielke Jr.'s Obama’s Phil Cooney And The New CCSP Report.
