The Watcher’s Council

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match-up.

To find yourself, think for yourself. – Socrates

Oh the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done! There are points to be scored. There are games to be won. And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the winning-est winner of all. – Dr.Suess

You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves. – President Abraham Lincoln


This week’s winning essay, Bookworm Room’s Self-reliance — the all-American virtue, is her fascinating look at an old fashioned, long ingrained American virtue and tradition… and the attempts to undermine it.

The custom each week is to entice you with a slice of the winning article. This week, In spite of my best efforts, I keep getting a database error message when attempting to access Bookworm’s site. Such things are normally temporary, so the upside is that you will have no reason not to go to the link and read her entire essay! Highly recommended.

In our non-Council category, the winner was Laura Ingraham with a superb piece, The Suicide of the GOP Establishment, submitted by The Razor. The GOP is indeed splitting apart and Ms. Ingraham puts the blame exactly where it belongs. A must read.

Here are this week’s full results. Only Fausta was unable to vote this week, but was not subject to the usual 2/3 vote penalty:

Non-Council Winners:

See you next week!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum and every Tuesday morning, when we reveal the week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week!

And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere and you won’t want to miss it… or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

And don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter… ’cause we’re cool like that, y’know?
