weasel

It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

Here are this weeks’ nominees….

The Man Who Would Be President, Senator Rand Paul!

 The Noisy Room : My nomination this week goes to Rand Paul:

Sen. Rand Paul on Tuesday said fellow Republican presidential candidate Ted. Cruz is “done for” in the Senate.

“Ted has chosen to make this really personal and chosen to call people dishonest in leadership and call them names, which really goes against the decorum and also against the rules of the Senate, and as a consequence, he can’t get anything done legislatively,” Paul told Fox News Radio. “He is pretty much done for and stifled and it’s really because of personal relationships, or lack of personal relationships, and it is a problem”. . .

“I approach things a little different, I am still just as hardcore in saying what we are doing, I just chose not to call people liars on the Senate floor and it’s just a matter of different perspectives on how best to get to the end result,” Paul said in the interview.

Paul backed McConnell’s 2014 re-election bid. Cruz had accused McConnell of lying to him about the way forward for the revival of the Export-Import Bank in the Senate.

Senator Ted Cruz attempted to offer an amendment to the must pass spending bill that would have halted the implementation of Obama’s Iran Deal and public funding to abortionists like Planned Parenthood… Cruz however wanted to make one last effort to put members of the Senate on the record, but GOP Senators were so scared of voting to strike funding for these Obama priorities that they opted to block Cruz from even receiving a vote. Cruz stood alone and did the right thing. No one backed him… no one. But he had the courage of his convictions and he stood.

For betraying a friend and a fellow Tea Party activist, Paul definitely has earned the Golden Weasel. For supporting the likes of Mitch McConnell and trying to publicly end Cruz’s political career, he should get it twice.

President Barack Hussein Obama!

Puma By Design : My nominee for Weasel of the Week goes to Barack Hussein Obama who began politicizing the death of nine people killed at Umpqua Community College in Oregon last week before rigor mortis set in (no disrespected intended, just trying to make a point).

I suspect that Obama‘s speech last week was actually written months ago, locked away in a desk in the Oval Office along with a batch of executive orders on gun control that the White House claims is being prepared for Obama’s signature.

From Breitbart:

“It’s a high priority and will continue to be until we start to see more progress on this issue in this town,’ White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters today at the press briefing…

‘I can tell you that they’re not stumped, they’re continuing to review the law that’s on the books and continuing to consult with legal authorities but also others who may have ideas about what steps that can be taken to keep guns out of the hands of criminals,’ Earnest said…”

Obama’s been stewing like a petulant child since his 2013-failed attempt to overhaul the gun laws has been anxiously awaiting the perfect crisis to add another chapter to his legacy memoirs even though it means dancing on the graves of those killed by mentally unstable nut jobs nudged over the edge by several years of hateful conflict-ridden Marxist propaganda often espoused by Obama himself and his sock puppets in the mainstream media and streets of America.

Finally, we have Obama’s double standard about when to call for gun control. The image below puts it all in perspective.

Well, there it is. Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.

And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it...or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

One thought on “Our Weasel Of The Week Nominees!

  1. I’ll support Rand Paul for this weeks nomination. Due to his genetics I also kept him at arms length with a sharp eye. Even though there has been a lot of issues that I agree with him on.

    When he first ran he sounded so much more reasonable that his Pops. He ran with Tea Party support. He has become the ultimate two bit, self absorbed, meme at any price politician the last couple of years. Matt Bevin ran against McConnell for re-election, Paul decided to literally “jump into bed with McConnell” and supported Mitch. He sold his soul because he needed McConnell’s support for his own interest.

    Kentucky law prohibits any candidates name from appearing on a ballot more than once, Paul needed that changed in order to run for President and re-election as Senator. The guy with the most juice to pull that off was McConnell. Mitch wanted Paul’s endorsement {and thereby Tea Party support} in order to garner his support for the change needed in the law.

    Mitch also allowed Paul to pull off his filibuster on NSA data collection, thereby energizing his base support for a run as President. Then Cruz wrote his Book and called out McConnell as a liar on the Senate floor which Paul didn’t much appreciate.

    His Presidential run has all but collapsed and now he is redirecting his attention to his Senate re-election. He had better put all he can into it, because there are a awful lot of pissed off Tea Party and Conservatives in Kentucky right now. The only thing they despise more than Mitch McConnell right now, seems to be Rand Paul.

    It’s going to be interesting to see if he pulls off his re-election. Especially while Matt Bevin is running for Governor. Bevin doesn’t like or care for either one of them. This could get real ugly, real quick.
