(I'll never know how Over-Thinking America would have fared.)
Topping the charts this week was Big Lizards (again, he's on a roll) with Does America Elect Defeatists? It's an optimistic prediction for the GOP in 2008, presented as a history lesson that shows that in time of war, America does not elect losers.
3. A tie for third, with Zawahiri Posts Important New Video, JoshuaPundit, and The Quietest Hero, Soccer Dad, which I enjoyed greatly -- the story of an unsung hero who used his bureaucratic position to save many Jews during WWII.
4. I Know What You're Against, but What are You For?, Bookworm's lesson in hard and soft atheism.
5. A tie here, with Authenticity, the West, and Islam from Eternity Road and Suffering By Comparison, Right Wing Nuthouse's critique of the GOP candidates.
6. A three-way tie: Have You Had Your Malamine Today? by The Glittering Eye (read this!), the Fort Dix Six by Rhymes with Right, and After Iraq: The Kurdish Option by Done With Mirrors.
In the Non-Watcher's Council, Michael Totten's excellence at middle east analysis again showed through, with "Better than a Thousand Israeli Invasions," my #1 pick, which just topped out an outstanding and very personal essay on why national health care is a bad idea, Two Words, by Cup of Love.
