As usual, some pretty great bits of thought and analysis ended up in this week's contest -- and one of the most superb responses to liberal libels of conservative opponents of the Obamunist agenda was the overwhelming choice of my fellow Council members and I in the Council Submissions category -- it is a must-read for everyone. Some interesting pieces received votes in the Non-Council category as well.
