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:

The winner this week in the Council Category was my post The Roots Of Slavery & The Races Hustlers’ Holy Grail – Reparations. It puts slavery in historical perspective, points out the many surreal elements of those who call for reparations, and lastly, makes the point that those calling for reparations are the penultimate race hustlers in our nation. Coming in second place was another great post from our resident professional writer, Gerard Van der Luen of American Digest. In The Circumnambulation of Queen Anne, he takes us on a caffeine fueled, humorous - and fully photographed - two mile walking tour of his neighborhood. It is, like everything else this man writes, highly entertaining. I would give my eye teeth to be able to write like him.

In the Non-Council Category, the winner was The Belmont Club's The Washington Monument, pointing out that Clinton has it wrong. The Tea Party's aren't expressing agression, they are expressing fear. Coming in tied for second place was Doug Ross must read post exposing the radicalism at the heart of many of the Latino protestors in Irony-meter breaks: La Raza, MEChA and other racial separatist groups worry that law enforcement might use racial profiling to enforce laws. Also tied for second place was RedState's Stop the Haters: FreedomWorks Responds.

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