Fanfare, everyone! It’s time to present this week’s 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 all slime-worthy, but in the end the overwhelming winner was… the envelope please…
Legend In His Own Mind And Rotund Radical Rabble Rouser Michael Moore!!
Nice Deb: Well, I thought Michael Moore dodged the weasel bullet, last week, after we allowed him to get away with several obnoxious statements about the movie American Sniper. He eventually backtracked a bit – but over the weekend, he came back with a vengeance.

The other weasel nominees have their work cut out for them, I think.
My my, did they ever! And it was a pretty tough field, too. But ultimately, Moore’s arrogance and long experience as a radical who hates everything good about his own country won out.
Whether it’s his faux “working man” pose while being a hugely wealthy employer who cheats his own workers and indulges in union busting, his 9/11 Trutherism, his cynical use of ‘Mother Sheehan’ for fun and profit, or his yammering about the evils of capitalism (while amassing a $50 million fortune and a total of 9 luxury homes), Michael Moore is one hefty hypocrite… and I’m not just talking about his poundage. This is the same man who produced a documentary, ‘Bowling For Columbine,’ about the evils of gun ownership who spends literally thousands of dollars on armed private security.
This particular instance of weaseldom is par for the course for Michael Moore… insulting far better men who actually risk their lives protecting his rotund, squishy physique. Ah, well. Come and get your Weasel, Mr. Moore. You won it fair and square.
Well, there it is!
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.
