Watcher's Council Nominations -Out Of Gas 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:

Council alum Trevor Loudon's new book, “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress” is due out August 20th, and if you're familiar with his last one, you know you're in for a superb read.

Superbly written and well sourced, it details the real roots of the toxic alliance between progressives, communists and socialists in America and connects the dots on a great deal of what's going on today.

You can preorder “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress” by clicking on the above icon.

Today's a special day...the birthday of our own Michael Haltman, The Political Commentator!

Actually, the big day was yesterday, but sometimes you need a little extra time to plan a proper party. Plus this way, I bet he thought I forgot.....

Michael's a tireless and prolific writer,blogger and a good friend I really value. You can always count on him to step in and make a difference when it counts, and that's an increasingly rare quality.

And in honor of his special day,  we celebrate!

Only New York's finest,a nifty raspberry swirl cheesecake from Junior's in Brooklyn will do.

And to go with, straight outta the Finger Lakes, some fine Genuine New York State Champagne, Great Western's Extra Dry:

A special birthday do for a very special person. Many more,'s to you!

This week, Ask Marion and The Pirate's Cove took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with some excellent articles.
