The Watcher's Council is a group of some of the most incisive blogs in the`sphere. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one of their own and one from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.
A full list of entries, including some excellent non-Council ones can be found here.
So, let's see what we have this week:
Joshuapundit - A Spectator At The Orgy - This week's piece concerns how and why the vast majority of the dinosaur media has been behaving the way they have during campaign `08. It's impossible for me not to feel a sense of foreboding, just from the look and tone of the party. They have no clue how dangerous a game they're playing or the ultimate consequences, and I don't think they're going to fully appreciate the effects even on the morning after until it's too late.
Bookworm Room - Obama wants the government to redistribute wealth -Ms. Bookworm, like many of us was struck by the recent revelations of Barack Obama's long time affinity for socialism and his feelings on using the Courts to enforce equality of results, as revealed in an interview on Chicago public radio. It relates to my piece this week in that it raises the question of why this is suddenly surfacing now...and why it's surfacing in the blogosphere and talk radio and not the dinosaur media.
Hillbilly White Trash - The gap between the media’s version and the actual truth grows wider Lemuel notes the difference between the dinosaur media's predictions on polls and early voting favoring Obama and the reality, and also remarks on media bias in this election.
Cheat-Seeking Missiles - Is a Barack Victory Predestined? - Laer has a fine post this week, wherein he uses Scripture to make the point that G-d governs our actions and has a plan for this world. I couldn't agree more.
The Colossus of Rhodey - We’re tired of it already - What Hube is tired of is the constant refrain that anyone not voting for the One is a de facto racist....and in this case, the subject he uses to illustrate this is an astonishingly servile column by Deborah Leavy in the Philly Daily News.
Soccer Dad - The campaign and israel: take 3029 - Soccer Dad takes an in-depth look at the aspects of the 2008 campaign focusing on Israel, and makes the point ( at least where the Jewish vote is concerned) that whom you support is very much a product of how important an issue support for America's ally Israel is for you...all th esmoke and mirrors to the contrary.
The Razor - The Good Daughter - This week, Scott writes on his feelings and thoughts while assisting his wife in sending his mother-in-law's ashes out to sea.
The Glittering Eye - Both Candidates Suck - Dave Schuler calls it like he sees it. I agree with him in many respects, but there is this, and it's important...character matters. And on that basis, John McCain seems like the obvious choice to me, given the alternative.
