Every week, the Watcher's Council nominate two posts each, one from the Council members and one from outside for consideration by the whole Council. The complete list of this week’s Council nominations is here.

In which Doctor Sanity comments on Michael Barone's column on why the Democrats have trouble winning elections and her reflections on the mental state that persists in calling each defeat a `moral victory'! The Doctor brings her expertise to a point I grasped some time ago; that to understand the Angry left, all you need is a good knowledge of child psychology. Good stuff, as always.

2. J O S H U A P U N D I T: The heartbreak of Dhimmi-itis...Work for the cure. A public service announcement by your friend, Doc Freedom Fighter as we examine the outbreak of a horrible epidemic in the West;dhimmi-itis, a terrible disease that causes non-Muslims in the West to embrace the Islamist world view of themselves,leading to amnesia,vision impairment and if not treated, a loss of self esteem, liberty, and prosperity. A cure IS possible, however.

The fit will hit the shan with this one.

3.Done With Mirrors: Uber Alles- Callimachus examines the German national anthem and it's implications for modern day Germans seeking national dignity and pride.

4. The Education Wonks: The Spellings Report: An Open Invitation For The Secretary EdWonk examines what they consider to be the excessive traveling of the Secretary of Education. I still wonder why we have a federal department for this...

5. The Strata-Sphere: Truthout Fantasizes Again AJ shows why the Left has trouble doing `new media'. The problem is that when you have what amounts to a RELIGIOUS point of view, any facts that are inconvenient fall by the wayside.

6. Early OT 2005 Court stats : New World Man - Matt examines the stats for the Roberts court.

7.Gates of Vienna: Children in Danger From the UN Dymphna puts the whip to the hypocrisy of the UN proclaiming “The Day of the African Child” by UNICEF and using the kids to shill for money and claiming to `emancipate' African children while allowing UN peacekeepers to rape them and sell them into slavery. A memorable beating administered to a very deserving subject.

8. ShrinkWrapped: They Can't Help Themselves, Its Their Nature. Shrinkwrapped talks about the MSM tacitly buying into the Islamist POV in an interview with a prominent American Islamist, and gives a contrasting view form an American Muslim who disagrees...and provides some fascinating detail as to why many American Islamists are, in his words `the same money-grubbing, promise-peddling, rhetoric-spewing, politically out of touch supremacist traditionalist leaders we have in the rest of the Muslim world'.

The pity, Shink, is that we have allowed the Saudis to bankroll and control the majority of mosques and madrassahs in America, giveng moderate Muslims hardly any place to stand up and be counted. A well done piece.

9. Rhymes With Right: Border jumpers cost Harris County $97,300,000 AnnuallyGreg tallies up the cost of illegal immigration in his locale.

10.Right Wing Nut House: “A GRAND OLD FLAG”Rick's tribute to the American flag...a worthy read. It truly is a grand old flag, isn't it?

11. The Glittering Eye: The Iraqi insurgency has no Central Command
Dave expounds on a previous post on the nature of the so-called `insurgency'.

12. The Sundries Shack: We Have Guarded Iraq Well
Jimmie Bise comes up with a good analysis of what the `mission' in Iraq really guard the fledgling Iraqi democracy until they can guard themselves.
