We have a winner!
My "pick the new New York Times wingnut" contest has come to an end with word that the Times has chosen Atlantic Monthly scold Ross "Dudley" Douthat to fill the seat recently vacated by legacy neocon Bill "William the Bloody" Kristol. The winning (and only) entry is Nomi Hurwitz' suggestion of Ann Coulter. Although Nomi didn't win the distinguished Platinum Pez Award by actually predicting Dudley's ascension to the Safire Chair of Punditry, her choice of Coulter is close enough to earn her the prized Golden Pez Award. She can pick up the award the next time she finds herself in Newport.
