Here are results that may surprise some of you. Close to 20% of those who voted think that the statue should stay right where it is.
Close to 20% of the participants think that the football contributions that Joe Paterno may have made at Penn State supersedes the fact that he basically stood idly by while an assistant coach committed multiple heinous acts of unspeakable sexual torture on innocent young boys.
It's a question of football success versus a lack of morality or conscience. What exactly is the message that Penn State is trying to send to the families and victims, current and past students of the school and the community?
That when you win games be it in college or the pros some people will forgive anything that you may do or in this case not do!
On to the Watcher's Council voting results!
The Watcher's Council nominations for the week of July 16th were presented, the votes were cast and counted, and the winner will now been announced!
For those who may be enjoying their first Watcher's Council experience, it is a group that consists of some of the top conservative bloggers from around the world.
A group that The Political Commentator is extremely proud to have been asked to be part of!
Each week members select and submit an article of their own creation in addition to one article from a non-council blog they find to be particularly topical and important.
While you may not always agree with what you read, that alone may make the experience that much more valuable!
Once the submissions have been received at an undisclosed location hidden somewhere on the Left Coast of the United States, the Watchers Council members then individually vote for their favorites.
Those votes are protected and held by outside auditing firm Arthur Andersen until such time as they are counted and a winner named for the Grand Prize.
This Grand Prize consists of the appreciation of ones peers.
In the end though, we all win because of the range of information and important analysis received on the critical issues of the day.
In a nutshell, the Watchers Council is the ultimate conservative blog aggregator!
So without further ado the winner(s) of the Watcher's Council for the week of July 16th is (are)...?
