The Results Are In

Each week, the members of the Watcher's Council nominate one of their own posts and a second from outside the Council for consideration by other council members in a contest for best post. The Watcher publishes the results each Friday. And the results of this weeks voting are in:

This weeks winner was Bookworm Room for her post, Tom Hanks shows stunning ignorance when he claims Americans were engaged in racial genocide against the Japanese during WWII. Ms. BWR speaks eloquently on the subject generally, and is also able to impart some family stories, her mother having spent WWII in a Japapnese POW camp. Coming in second place was The Razor with Scorched Earth, discussing, of course, the new era of bipartisanship ushered in by Obama and Pelosi. And as the Razor astutely notes, "Unfortunately Obama and his crew are as supine and weak when it comes to American enemies abroad as they are ruthless and tough domestically."

In the non-Council category, the winner was Abe Greenwald of Contentions, Outsmarting history Submitted by Bookworm Room. Coming in second place was Megan McArdle of The Atlantic for 8 Predictions for Health Care Submitted by The Glittering Eye.

There were some great entries this week. You can find them all, as well as the full results of the voting at the Watcher's site.
