Watcher's Council Nominations On The Eve Of The Palin-Biden Debate

First up, we have a vacancy on the Watcher's Council. If you would like to join, please visit the Watcher's site. You will find a link to instructions on how to apply on the right sidebar of the site.

Each week, the members of the Watcher's Council nominate one of their own posts and a second from outside the Council for consideration by other council members in a contest for best post. The Watcher publishes the results each Friday morning. There is never an organized theme to our submissions, but more often than not many posts cover different aspects of the same topic. Having looked at the submissions, the Watcher has commented upon the week that was and the weeks submissions:

Submissions this week come at a time when there is much turmoil in the financial markets and the media continues its attempts to undermine John McCain and Sarah Palin. An explanation on how far the media will go to undercut the Republicans is that PBS VP debate moderator is Gwenn Ifill is a Palin critic. Even more alarming is that Ifill stands to gain financially from a book she wrote if Barack Obama wins the election. The book is due out on inaguration day.

1. Rhymes With Right - In The Aftermath Of Ike – The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

GW - you are killing me. (with kindness, of course.) Thank you so much for the Watcher's Council nod. I was a bit taken aback to see it, but truly appreciate your generosity.

Thanks bud.
