As people of the Jewish faith currently celebrate Hanukkah and Christians around the world prepare to celebrate Christmas, the nominations at the Watcher's Council were presented, the votes were cast, and the winners will now be announced!
For those of you who who may be reading about the Watcher's Council for the first time, it is a group consisting of some of the top conservative minded bloggers from around the world.
A group that The Political Commentator is extremely proud to have been asked to be part of!
Every week each member selects and submits one of their own articles in addition to one article from a non-council blog.
In a secret ballot we then individually vote for our favorites with those votes protected by an outside auditing firm until such time as they are counted and a winner named for the Grand Prize.
This Grand Prize consists of the appreciation of our peers.
In the end though, all of us and all of our readers win because of the range of information and important analysis received on all of the critical issues of the day.
In a nutshell, the Watcher's Council is the ultimate conservative blog aggregator!
