I don't think this is one of those results where you question the motives of the judging (i.e. favoritism, politics). I liked Plushenko because he was the only skater to execute a quadruple jump. He was a bit wonky in some of his other jumps even though he didn't fuck up any of their landings. Lysecek had a perfect skate, but again he didn't even try a quad. But then the analysts said his skate was better choreographed. I guess the result could have gone either way. I would have given it to the Russian.
