Chuck Hagel is such a bad nominee for Secretary of Defense that there may actually be hope that he won't report for duty with the same ease that Swifty did as Secretary of State!
Despite the fact that after the embarrassment of the confirmation hearing one would assume Obama might consider pulling the nomination, that is not the case as the White House 'fully' expects the nomination to be passed with Jay Carney adding that Hagel did a 'fine job'!
To that statement our enemies are laughing while Americans paying any attention along with Israel should obviously be very concerned over another incompetent in a critical national security position.
The Watcher's Council
Welcome to the results of the Watcher's Council for the week of January 28, 2013
The Watcher's Council nominations for the week of January 21st were presented, the votes were cast and counted, and the winner will now been announced!
For those who may be enjoying their first Watcher's Council experience, it is a group that consists of some of the top conservative bloggers from around the world.
A group that The Political Commentator is extremely proud to have been asked to be part of!
Each week members select and submit an article that they have written in addition to one article from a non-council blog they find to be particularly topical and important.
While you may not always agree with what you read, that alone may make the experience much more valuable!
Once all of the nominated articles have been received at an undisclosed location by the Council leader, a location that is well hidden somewhere on the Left Coast of the United States, the Watchers Council members review and vote for their favorite entries.
These votes are protected and held by outside auditing firm Arthur Andersen until such time as they are counted and a winner has been chosen for the Grand Prize.
This Grand Prize which of course consists solely of the appreciation of ones peers.
In the end, however, we all win for having had the opportunity to read the analysis of the critical issues of the day.
In a nutshell, the Watchers Council is the ultimate conservative blog aggregator!
So without further ado the winner(s) of the Watcher's Council for the week of January 28th is (are)...?
