This Week’s Watcher’s Council Nominations

The Watcher’s Council Nominations – September Song Edition

on Sep 12 2012 | Filed under: Nominations.

Ah, September!

It’s one of the more interesting months, somehow not quite summer but not quite Autumn.It’s a transition month between the two, a time for ramping things up as we head for the year’s end. And that’s never more true than in an election year.

The conventions, watched by one of the smallest audiences ever are over and done with, as Americans begin, as they historically do, to pay close attention to the elections.

In spite of a massive campaign by the media to convince the American people that the campaign is over and Barack Obama is headed towards re-election, the real, uncooked numbers suggest otherwise and the election pretty much remains a dead heat, and likely will until the debates.I guarantee you, a lot more people will be watching the debates than the conventions.

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive and well written 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.

Council News:
