Watcher's Council Nominations, 1/07/09

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.

So, let's see what we have this week....


Joshuapundit - It’s Hard Out There For A ( Hamas) Pimp - This week, I took a look at the suffering of some of Gaza's entrepeneurs..oh, the humanity! a manner of speaking, I guess..

Rhymes With Right - On The Conflict Against Hamas - Greg's take on the current war in Gaza, and his hopes for peace.

Bookworm Room - Taking Reagan’s Name in Vain - Ms. Bookworm takes proper exception to Senator Dianne Feinstein invoking the name of Ronald Reagan in a call to Presoident-elect Obama to disarm America's nuclear defenses . Absolutely Orwellian.

The Glittering Eye - Money for the States? - Dave examines the case for bailout money to the states. Ironically he got some spam in his comments section for 'payday loans - fast, cheap and convenient when you need money in a hurry!"

Cheat-Seeking Missiles - Portrait of an Arse as a Dead Man - The arse Laer in talking about in this nifty play on Joyce is none other than Hamas kingpin Nizar Rayyan - who is now roasting in hell if such a place exists. Laer gives us a brief history of the arse and why he was so, so worthy of a Hamas-B-cue, courtesy of the IDF.

Soccer Dad - Nyt: hamas upgrades = success / israel defends = disaster - Ah, Pravda-on-the Hudson..the gift that keeps on giving. I'll actually be sorry to see them go out of busines. Werll, almost.

The Razor - ‘Physician Shortage’ and the Free Market - An interesting post by Scott on a topic I haven't seen covered elsewhere in quite this way - the relationship between starting salaries and the availability of general practicioners.

Right Truth - It’s a Terrifying World - Debbie does a wrap up of a number of other disturbing developments an dthreats to world peace that are going on besides Gaza.

Mere Rhetoric - Concise List Of Middle East Failures That Were Going To Happen Anyway But That Foreign Policy Experts Will Now Blame On Israel - Omri has fun showing exactly how misdirected and silly an academic foreign policy wonk can be.

The Colossus of Rhodey - Dopey WNJ Letter of the Week -Hube has a fine example of someone who exibits a total lack of critical thinking on the Middle East. It's fascinating how widespread the well-funded Saudi disinformation campaign on the subject has become.

The Provocateur - Jews, Israel and the Democratic Party - Mike wonders why Jews continue to support the Democrats so overwhelmingly, given that in his view Republicans are more supportive of Israel.
