Watcher's Council Nominations - Lawless Edition

Welcome to the Watcher's Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the 'sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.

Council News:

This week, our friend and Council mate Hube over at the Colossus of Rhodey celebrated a real milestone...ten years of blogging! Congrats, Amigo!

Former Council fixture and esteemed member of the Watcher's Council community David Gerstman let me know about a wonderful event in his family..his first grandchild. Mazel Tov and behatzlechah gadol, habibi.

Our friend and Council mate Michael over at The Political Commentator participated in a unique event last week, boxing for charity. Not only did he showus that his skills extend to the Sweet Science and win his bout, but the event raised over $300,000 for some excellent causes, so that's two victories with one blow we can congratulate him on. Respect, Micheal, very, very, well done.

And This Week, Ask Marion, Boker Tov Boulder, Right Truth and The Pirate's Cove took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with some great articles.

You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.

Simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address ( which won't be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then return the favor  by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out Wednesday morning

Simple, no?

It's a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members. while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?

I love that picture with Obama and all the pigs!! It really shows what a Socialist capitalism-hating president who hates the free market. ...wait a minute... Is this what they call cognitive dissonance?

You shouldn't try to use terms you don't understand, Leftard.

Are you that out of touch that you're not aware of the billions given to Obama's donors using 'green energy scams', the no bid contracts like the huge one to Obama donor CGI Federal to build the ObamaCare website, Michele's no show job at Chicago University hospital, and all the other corruption scandals?

And ObamaCare itself, which is just a huge wealth transfer to the Obamas and the favored few? Like Goldman Sachs?

I guess so.

This is just Chicago on a national level. It's called crony capitalism. You're the one who ought to be worried about cognitive dissonance.
