Watcher's Council Nominations: The Search For The Lost E-mails Edition

Oh, the thrills and's our heroine, Lois Lerner using the dreaded, deadly hashtag. That'll show them congress critters!

After hearing from the IRS that Lerner's emails for the past two years mysteriously died in a hard drive crash, one of those congress critters, Darrell Issa, subpoenaed Lerner's entire hard drive.

The IRS has already replied, saying well,you know, it was just sitting there not doing anything and we believe one of the guys, we can't remember exactly who, took it home to use it as a boat anchor. But that didn't work so good because it was too light, and it was too heavy to be a decent fishing sinker. So if we remember right, the story was that he cut it loose and threw it overboard and as far as we know it's somewhere at the bottom of Chesapeake Bay. Or it might have happened when he took his boat down river to Virginia, no one's really sure. Anyway, it's not here anymore. We regret that we can't be of more help, really we do.

This,I believe is what our grandfathers would have referred to as a real fish story.

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.

This week's contest is dedicated to kidnap victims Ya'akov Naftali (ben Rachel Devorah), Gilad Michael (ben Bat Galim), and Eyal (Ben Iris) Teshura. Please pray for their safe return.

* VA Right's Tom White is on quite a roll after being one of the few political writers if not th eonly one to correctly predict Eric Cantor's demise in his native Virginia! He's been cited numerous places, was the subject of a laudatory article by NewsMax and was interviewed by, among other places, the Washington Post and The Columbia Journalism Review, and we'll definitely have those links for you once they're up.Council Akbar!!
