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 morning.
The Council in Action...
Greg over at Rhymes With Right was instrumental in getting a resolution passed by his local county Republican Executive Committee coming out against 'pay for play' local endorsements.
