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 an opening at the Council if you would like to nominate your blog for the Council. If you go to the Watcher's site, you will find instructions on how to apply on the right-hand sidebar.
Terry Trippany plays the role of Watcher of Weasels. Do visit the Watcher's Site for his theme of the week. Normally, he chooses a single topic on which to write, but he today gives voice to a reality that also struck me in the past week - the vast amount of hot topics that are innundating us today. His thoughts on it are worth repeating:
One thing is certain however, each topic usually has two things in common, Barack Obama, and a corrupt media failing to provide the oversight and insight necessary to adequately educate the people they seek to
Regardless of the topic you will usually find that Barack Obama is at the root of the problem, not as some sort or problem solver but as an antagonist or an agitprop. Whether it is the Obama administration’s missteps on Iran by failing to support democracy and liberty over tyranny and oppression, the illegal firing and subsequent smear campaign against former AmeriCorps inspector general Gerald Walpin or the further degeneration of the mainstream media as ABC teams up with the White House to promote the Democrats plan to get their hands on the Health Care industry and all the dollars that go with it, Barack Obama is a central figure in each of these problems.
