The Watcher's Council: Over 30 articles from some of the top conservative bloggers around the world all in one easy to read location!
If it's Wednesday it can mean only one thing! That it's time for the weekly article nominations at the Watcher's Council!
This week’s edition is dedicated to the country finally finding a cat that could actually get to Barack Obama's tongue, effectively preventing him from commenting on a news story before all of the facts were in.
The only wrinkle is that the story involved the Secret Service hookergate scandal and that all of the facts were in, but the President chose not to comment on them anyway.
Upon closer examination the reason for his reticence must have been that the case did not involve a black victim and white suspect so that there was no opportunity for stirring any racial divisiveness.
The Watcher's Council
So now who and what is the Watcher's Council?
The Watcher's Council is a long-standing group of 15 conservative bloggers from around the world and winner of the 2011 Fabulous 50 Blog Award in the category of Best Conservative Blog-Ring.
Each week, first thing Wednesday morning, we the members of the Watcher's Council make known our two articles for public consumption; one of our own (Council) and one from somewhere around the blogosphere (Non-Council) that address issues we feel are particularly timely and important to present.
After a secret ballot among the members, Friday morning the winners in each category are announced and the grand prize, the appreciation of our peers, is awarded!
Watcher's Council home gamers are not only welcome but they are encouraged! Pick your favorite articles below and cast your vote in the comments section.
For the week of April 16, 2012 the Watcher's Council nominations are...Tweet Follow @Halthouse1
