The Watcher’s Council has announced its winners for the past week. This week the winner in the Council post category was Joshuapundit’s “Update On UCSD MSA Member Who Admitted She Wants A Second Holocaust”. Second place honors went to Rhymes With Right’s A Tale Of Two Controversies — UPDATED & BUMPED, another take on the same subject.
The winning non-Council post was Iowahawk’sInvisible Assholes. Second place honors went to Doug Ross @ Journal’s Illinois Melts Down: the Inevitable Result of Unchecked Democrat Rule. I thought this was a good post on a subject near and dear to my heart. I disagreed, however, with Doug’s implied conclusion that a tax increase should have no role in straightening out Illinois’s fiscal house. While I don’t think that increasing the income tax should be the only measure taken or even constitute the greater part of the solution, I do think that we’re going to need an increase in the state income tax here.
Here are the winners for the previous week. This week the winner in the Council post category was Rhymes With Right’s “Didn’t These Administrators Read Tinker v. Des Moines?”. Second place honors went to Wolf Howling’s Right & Wrong Responses To The Gulf Spill, for which I voted.
The winning non-Council post was Daled Amos’sThe Palestinian Leader (Who Actually Isn’t) Got Approval (Not Really) For Peace Talks. Second place honors went to Wall Street Journal Online’s Islam’s Nowhere Men.
