Second place was a three-way tie: Are Conservatives Really Hoping for Another 9/11?, from Right Wing Nuthouse was a long and thoughtful piece and the answer, in short, is we're not. Soccer Dad's A President's Legacy Quick Fix Playground -- The Middle East, got one of my votes. It ponders why presidents keep thinking they'll establish their legacy with a Middle East solution. Also there was Done with Mirrors' Pangloss, which I also voted for, a hard body slam to libs who minimize the risks terror poses.
I was a bit of a bottom dweller this week, as I thought I would be.
Over on the Non-Council side, my two favorites came in first and second, TCS Daily's Myths and Realities of the George Bush Presidency, and Politics of Terror Reign Supreme from All Things Beautiful. I just love this blog – the stunning art combines with Alexandra von Maltzan’s spot-on nailing of the issues to make each visit a delight.
See how all the entries fared here. As always, thanks to Watcher for putting on this little fest each week.
