Happy New Years: Auld Lang Syne

My favorite version of Auld Lang Syne from the O’Reilly Consort in my favorite Christmas album – The Only Celtic Holiday Album You Will Ever Need.

Happy New Year’s everyone – Geo, Carlos, MM and all you lurkers. Let’s hope and pray it’s a better one than the last two or three or seven.


Our Weasel Of The Week!

Yes, It’s time to present 2015’s last statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were particularly slimy and despicable, but the votes are in and we have our winner…the envelope please…


The Washington Post’s Disgusting Cartoonist, Ann Telnaes:

JoshuaPundit : For a new bottom in political  Weaselness well below the norm, even in an election season. Simply an indecent person.

I have nothing more to say about this disgraceful, vicious human being I didn’t say above in the link. She is simply a vile human being without decency who richly deserves a Weasel.

Rep Ipso Loquiter…the thing speaks for itself.

Happy New Year Everyone.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

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.

And don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter..’cause we’re cool like that, y’know?

Video: Best MSNBC Fails of 2015

Another “supercut” courtesy of our friends at the Washington Free Beacon.

Give MSNBC credit: The network’s higher-ups realized the channel was in drastic need of a change in 2015.

Five shows were canceled. Daytime programming was dramatically altered to focus on hard news instead of light-weight liberal commentary.

But true to its ultra-progressive nature, MSNBC still had another bizarre year, from Melissa Harris-Perry decrying the term “hard worker” because it demeaned slaves to a panelist suggesting Bobby Jindal was trying to appease conservatives and “scrub the brown off his skin.”


You’re welcome. I thought you’d enjoy it.
