Weasel Whacked

I freely admit it wasn’t one of my best posts, so I can’t say I’m surprised to have squeaked in with only one vote.  Oh! You want to know what I’m talking about? Last week’s Weasel results, of course. But enough about my rather dismal showing. Let’s talk about the winners:

On the Council side, first place went to Done With Mirrors for Liberal Fascism. In it, Callimachus basically said that he doesn’t like Jonah Goldberg’s book, and then he goes on to rip-roaring discussion about fascism. Since you all know that I really loved Goldberg’s book, I didn’t vote for that post, even though I have to admit that it’s a really good one. Such is the problem of voting with emotions, not intellect (liberals, take heed). There was a seven way tie for second place, with the Watcher breaking the tie and awarding official second place rank to Right Wing Nut House for Grim Choices Confront GOP — a premise and a post with which I entirely agree.

Just so you can see how wildly weird the voting was (and so I feel better about my tie for last place), here’s the ranking (primary voters take heed):

Votes Council link
2 2/3 Liberal Fascism
Done With Mirrors
1 Grim Choices Confront GOP
Right Wing Nut House
1 ‘I Have A Dream’ — The Democrat’s Version
1 Hillanomix 101
Wolf Howling
1 The Radicalization of American Politics
The Glittering Eye
1 Di Caprio Lies and Hustles Bucks
Cheat Seeking Missiles
1 Our Out of Control Borders: Who’s Accountable?
The Education Wonks
1 What Is “Freedom”?
The Colossus of Rhodey
1/3 Rose Colored Rudy
Soccer Dad
1/3 The Problem With Obama’s Race
Bookworm Room

Actually, when it comes to divided voting, things really weren’t much better over at the non-Council side — that is, if you don’t count the overwhelming win IowaHawk received for the masterful ByLines of Brutality (a post that I submitted and for which I voted):

4 Bylines of Brutality
1 2/3 It’s All Israel’s Fault
Gates of Vienna
1 2/3 About the Anarcholibertarians
The QandO Blog
1 1/3 Doctors and Death and Doctors Death
The IgNoble Experiment
1 The Navy’s Failing China Policy
Pajamas Media
1/3 Let’s End the Cold War and Get Rid of Marxist BS Once and for All
Dr. Sanity
1/3 Pondering the Google Slap
1/3 A Relatively Scientific Experiment
Power Line
1/3 Media Lens Tries History, Yet Again
Oliver Kamm

It will be interesting to see what happens this week — if we’ll be able to coalesce around a single leader, or if we’ll again be incapable of coming together.

  1. Wasn’t so bad coming in last? We weren’t in last, there were two watchers who didn’t get anything! BTW, there was nothing wrong with your post, but you and JoshuaPundit covered much of the same territory. (OK this week Big Lizards and Colossus of Rhodey shared second place with you despite covering the same territory.)

    Anyway Right Wing Nuthouse wasn’t elevated to second place, but was demoted to a tie for not voting.

  2. Which just tells, you SD, how bad I am at details. I was speaking with a Mom the other day who finds herself handicapped by her obsessive attention to details. That is not a problem I have — ever! Thanks for all the solid information to replace my assumptions.
