Sorry about the silence today, but I was being a lawyer and, moreover, I was being a lawyer over at a client’s office, rather than here in my own home. After that, I quickly swung into being a bill paying, driving, and shopping mother, so this is my first time at my computer today. The sad truth is that I have no idea what’s going on today. I haven’t read a single news story. Also, I have to get in my votes for the Watcher’s Council, so I get the pleasure of reading those submissions first, before drowning myself in the usual bad news that is regular fare in Obama’s America.
Oh! One thing — I got teased by James Taranto for mixing metaphors in the title of my post about American Sniper: “American Sniper” — a Rorschach test separating wheat from chaff. He’s right too. What I really meant to say was “‘American Sniper’ — It’s like taking a Rorschach test, with the results helping separating smart patriots from dumb Leftists,” but I thought that title would be too long.
Anyway, here, straight from the Watcher’s Council, are this week’s nominations:
Unbelievable. Simply unbelievable.
Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.
The Council In Action!!
*Virginia Right’s Tom White continues to ascend! This week, an original song of his was featured on John Stossel’s FOX show. It starts about 5 minutes into this segment:
You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.
To bring something to my attention, simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address (mandatory, but of course your e-mail address won’t be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out on Wednesday morning
It’s a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?
