The Watchers Council

As some of you may have already been made aware The Watcher, the leader of the great and powerful Watchers Council, has retired due to health issues. I suspect foul play. Anyone who listens to talk radio or watches the cable news shows knows of the part that the Watchers Council played in the downfall of Hillary Clinton and we all have seen the video of her insane profane ravings to ever smaller audiences where she swears her vengeance upon her enemies.

In other words I think that the Watcher's doctors need to check for rician.

However life must go on and this week's Watchers Council vote is being hosted by Joshuapundit.

Here are the nominations:

I apologise to my fellow council members because I was unaware that the vote was going on this week and so did not either submit any writings for consideration (one of my essays was picked for me - and it is the one I would have submitted) and I did not even see that a vote was being held until it was already too late to vote.

I will bring you the results tomorrow as usual and in future weeks I will hold up my end.

For now and in all seriousness let's all say a prayer for the Watcher's health. He is a good man and an asset to the blogosphere. May he have a speedy and complete recovery and be back among us ASAP.
