Watcher's Winners

Bookworm's fabulous essay, Judeo-Christian Doctrine and Moral Values, handily won this week's Watcher of Weasels-hosted blogfest. Despite its stodgy title, it's a perfectly Bookish entry -- crime as seen by Islam and Leftism, captured via Officer Krupke.

Runner-up honors were split between Done With Mirrors' Ron Paul and Soccer Dad's First let the lawyers kill us all. The former was fine backgrounding for me, as I spent yesterday evening in a swarm of Ron Paul followers. The latter revealed that lawyers vetted every action by Israel in its recent war against Hezbollah in Lebanon, managing to screw up everything, both militarily and politically.

On the non-Council side, a rather lengthy but totally compelling piece by Silver Bullet, Fear, was the runaway winner. The piece addresses and rebuts the Left's allegations that the Bush Administration has employed fear tactics in the War on Terror.

Coming in second was Watcher's Council alum Eternity Road with Laughter and Tears, a temporary, thank God, goodbye from the Curmudgeon Emeritus, describing the heavy burden we defenders of truth and liberty must carry.

See all the winners here, where you won't find your humble author, who got a skunking for a Christmas/birthday present from his fellow Council members.
