These Watcher’s Winners aren’t so recent anymore, since the results came out last Friday, but my last days after been so overwhelming, I figure I’m still ahead of my own curve getting the information up here by Wednesday. First, the Winners, then any comments I might have.

Thinking about it, my comments are more general than specific. As happened last week, the council members seemed to be dividing their votes all over the place, with some strong winners, but mostly with a lot of divided opinions — which pretty accurately reflects the Republican primaries. Our choices aren’t binary (black versus female), they are myriad, and our passions take us in different directions. As it is, I did vote for both of the 1st place winners, so my ideas on those subjects are certainly consistent with the majority of my fellow Council members. It was a tough vote for me, though, especially on the Council side, because I thought it was an exceptionally strong batch of articles from each and every contributor. That being the case, I’m very flattered that my own nomination, about George Soros, tied for second place, along with posts from Big Lizards and the Colossus of Rhodey.
As always, if you’re casting around for something to read — something to inform, entertain or enlighten — you could do much worse than check out the posts at the Watcher of Weasels.
