Watcher's Council Nominations & An Opening

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. This week, it is the disasterous cap and trade bill just passed unread in its entirety by the House:

As you know the House passed the Waxman-Malarkey cap-n-tax global warming bill thanks in part to 8 sellout Republicans that took money from environmental whackos in return for a vote that will cost American’s millions of jobs, further erode our nation’s competitive standing and suck more of the hard earned money you make from your family so it can be siphoned to friends of those in Congress.

But don’t believe me. The Heritage foundation took a look at the figures from both the EPA and the CBO and found that they vastly under estimated their numbers. These are the numbers being peddled as fact for your reference.

Today’s liberals however see the Heritage numbers as a conservative ploy. . . .

Terry continues on, noting that the real culture of corruption lies on the left. Do read his entire post.
