Council Winners

Watchers Council winners have been posted for the week of May 2.

These people really don't care for Obama. The winner in the council was The Total Witlessness of Obama Apologists by Right Wing Nut House.

Votes also went to Outfoxed By Obama & The Twelve Unasked Questions at Wolf Howling, who, as usual, is devastatingly thorough. Then it was The Glittering Eye with Rising Food Prices, which I voted for. Then it was back to Obama with The Company One Keeps at Joshuapundit. Votes also went to An Article About Islam Most Amazing for What It Doesn't Say at Bookworm Room.

Outside the Council the winner was An Anatomy of Surrender by Bruce Bawer in City Journal, which sums up the evidence for the case that Islamists are subverting the West, especially Europe, and that native populations are either willfully blind to it or perversely cooperating in the process.

Votes also went to Political Maneuver in Counterinsurgency by David Kilcullen at Small Wars Journal, and Affirmative Action Abortions at Balkinization.

And here's a catch-up post for the week of April 18.

First place winner in the council by an overwhelming vote went to The Next Moves In An Existential Chess Match by Wolf Howling.

The few other votes went to Does America Need a New Enemy? One Brit Thinks So... by Hillbilly White Trash; and Elitism and the Elitist Elites Who Think They're the Elite by Right Wing Nut House.

Outside the council, the winner was It's the "White" Church that Obama's Talking About by Baldilocks.

Votes also went to Zombie Chronicles the Olympic Torch Relay in SF at Pajamas Media; 'This Is How We Lost to the White Man' in The Atlantic; Hope for Iraq’s Meanest City in City Journal; and The War of Ideas in Family Security Matters.
