This week's winning Council post was The Wild, Wild West(ern Europe) at Gates of Vienna. There was a 5-way tie for second place between ESCAPING THE LEGAL AND MORAL QUAGMIRE OF GUANTANAMO, Jew hater Bush?!??, Why haven’t we captured Osama bin Laden?, Lives, fortunes, and sacred honor, and Among the Dead Cities.
The non-Council winning post was Declaration of Independence: A Fisking, by James Joyner at Outside the Beltway. It will make you very happy that the Internet did not exist in 1776. In second place was Sometimes even the good ones lose their way at The Shape of Days.
