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.

And the winners are:

This was the week of Laer, proprietor of the Cheat-Seeking Missiles blog. He won the council vote and his submission in the non-council category won also. I was one of those voting for his Council post, McCain’s Needed New Messaging Strategy. Laer thinks McCain needs to revamp how he communicates. I could not agree more. Coming in second place was my post, A Doddering Fool, about the incredibly disingenuous and hypocritical Sen. Chris Dodd, a man who is at the center of the subprime crisis.

In the Non-Council category, the winner was from the American Thinker - Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis. Tied for second place was ShrinkWrapped's - Everything Is New Under The Sun. That post tied with St Louis C of CC's Obamination: Obama Supporters Bob McCulloch, Jennifer Joyce Threaten to Prosecute People For Criticizing Obama
The post I submitted was Dinah Lord's Then The Gods Of The Market Tumbled . . ., a great explanation of credit default swaps gumming up our credit market.

You can find the full results of the voting here.

Thanks again for the kind consideration, my friend.
