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.
Ah Pharaoh, let our people go! Lest the Lord smite thee with a mighty hand and ruin thy golf game for eternity!
The longer he’s in office, the longer this president continues to astound with his arrogance, dishonesty and incompetence. His latest assault on the Supreme Court over a pending matter, something unheard of until now, is just Barack Obama’s latest dive for the cellar.
However, this being a time when some of us recall deliverance from Pharaoh, let’s not forget that it’s also a time of hope, that things can change for the better and that freedom is just around the corner waiting to be grasped.
This week’s contest is dedicated to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and in particular to one Judge Jerry Smith.
This week, The Stewart Blog, Right Truth, Maggie’s Notebook, Mental Recession and Ask Marion, took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with some superb pieces.
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 Joshuapundit and post the title and 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 6 PM PST in order 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 when it comes out on Wednesday.
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? You know it, how good it is… 🙂
