The Watcher’s Council has announced its picks for the most outstanding posts of the preceding week. The winning Council post was Right Wing Nut House’s post, “A Slap in the Face”. This post notes that the proposals for dealing with illegal aliens that are making their way through the Congress are a slap in the face to the legal immigrants who have played by the rules. Tied for second place were the Education Wonks’s post, “Walking Out on Their Futures?”, about the poor priorities of students who cut their classes to demonstrate on behalf of illegal aliens and Watcher’s Council tiro Joshuapundit’s post, “What Bush Need to do to Come Back”.
I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a higher vote tally for any non-Council post as for this week’s winner, Unwilling Self-Negation’s post, “Open Letter to Reformist Muslims”. As me auld mither frequently says, “It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness” and that’s what this post is: lighting a candle. The second place post was Winds of Change’s dispassionate analysis of military transport, “Hummer Death Traps Suck”.
