This week's Watcher's Council nominations are up with an intro written by JoshuaPundit about Sarah Palin.

How Bonds Work (and How Current Policy Will Wreck Them and the Economy With It) - The Provocateur explains the bond market and what the Obama administration is doing that will make the problem even worse.

Pride Or Lack Thereof - Right Truth discusses the murder of Steve McNair and how his infidelity is a symptom for what ails this country. May I also recommend Baseball Crank with a slightly different take.

In Re: Palin - Rhymes With Right maps out a path for Sarah Palin to return to national politics. He hopes that Mark Steyn is wrong. I do too, but after reading John Fund today (via memeorandum), I think that Steyn might very well be correct.

Haeckel and the Development of Nations - The Glittering Eye doesn't think that China will do the right things because we ask it to.

Prominent Jewish Democrats Double Down On Obama.Unpersuasively. - Mere Rhetoric points out how empty Alan Dershowitz's recent defense of President Obama's Middle East policy is.

The Pot Simmers  - Wolf Howling presents an excellent summary of what's going on now in Iran.

The Declaration of Independence . . . and chickens?
Bookworm Room explains why we should barbecue chicken on July 4.

Extra! Extra! get Your Paper - I discussed how the Washington Post sold itself. Presstitution.

My nomination for non-council post this week is The Middle East is a place where wishful
thinking gets people killed but makes careers for politicians, diplomats,
academics, and journalists
by Barry Rubin. Yes, the title makes for a good summary.

Read. Enjoy. Be informed.
