Watcher's Council Nominations

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.

We are happy to welcome to the Council Gerard Van der Luen, proprieter of the American Digest, a blog I have been following for years. Mr. Van der Luen has had a storied career as an editor, publisher and author. He brings a unique style and wit to the Council. I, for one, could not be happier that he has joined the Council.

If you would like to participate in the Council's activites, while there is no opening on the council at the moment, we invite you take part by submitting your own best post of the week through "link whorage." You can find out how in the post here.

This week's nominations are on a wide array of topics - Afghanistan, Climategate, Fistinggate (shiver), Islamists at Ground Zero, Islamist rhetorical devices, the origins of Chirstmas, and a descent into madness brought on by Billy Joel. Do enjoy them all:
