Watcher's Council 'To Russia with Love' Results Edition (Week of 8/5/2013)

The Watcher's Council

TPC dedicates this weeks edition of the Watcher's Council to the tiff between Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin over Russia's granting of asylum to Edward Snowden that resulted in the Obama administration canceling the planned meeting of the two men.

That's right! Rather than go and sit mano a mano across from the Russian President to air US grievances over the decision, Barack Obama has instead called it off leading to speculation by TPC that Putin in private might compare Barack Obama to the Thai dish johk.

For a movie (Hangover 2) explanation of what johk is please refer to the article 'Would Vladimir Putin ever compare Barack Obama to the Thai food johk? (Hangover 2 Video)' here.

On to the results!

The results for the week of August 5, 2013 Watcher's Council have just been released with first place awarded to Joshuapundit for an article that explores the futility of the so-called 'Peace Process' in the Middle East.

The Political Commentator placed sixth with an article that uses two sports analogies to describe the methods with which the Obama administration is trying to get away with scandal after scandal.

The link to both articles, along with links to the other must-read articles from some of the worlds top conservative minds, can be found below.

The Watcher's Council nominations for the week of August 5, 2013 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 fact 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 consists of the appreciation of ones peers.

In the end, however, we are all winners for having had the opportunity to read the analysis of the critical issues of the day.

In a nutshell, the Watchers Council is a one-stop shop for the ultimate in conservative opinion, analysis and commentary!
