Watcher's Council Nominations - Technical Difficulties Edition

(Here's Eric Clapton's sweet version, and Leadbelly's original recording, just for contrast)

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.

This week's contest is dedicated to those determined members who dealt with flooding and power outages and still pumped out this week's fine nominations. Them, and Glenn Beck.Can't leave him out.

Council News:

This week, Monkey In The Middle , The Mellow Jihadi, Maggie's Notebook and Capitalist Preservation took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status.

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 the ‘Contact Me’ page at Joshuapundit and post 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 to be considered for our honorable mention category, and return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week.

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?

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

I do mean the following with all due respect:
Lol! I didn't know until now that I had a NSFW rating on my First Wookie post.
For Gods's sake, the Obama's have been raping the country for two and a half years, and I'm Not Safe For Wife?
The difference between me and Michelle Obama is I wont take the last pork chop on the table out of your childrens mouths.
The difference between me and Barack is I wont steal your wifes purse.
I gotta rethink the Watchers of Weasels thing.

Ain't no big thing Will. It's strictly about the language used,not the content itself.

Personally, I thought it was hilarious but I feel as an editor I have to be considerate of others by at least warning them so they don't open the link in an inappropriate place.

I'm on board, Rob. Just yankin' your chain. I do demand though that the Obama's be labeled Not Safe For Country.
