Every week, like clockwork, the Watchers of Weasels vote and make sure you get the chance to read the best articles written by members of the Watcher’s council, and by others out in the blogosphere. This week, the two most highly rated articles written by council members are Eternity Road’s first place Serving While Republican, which looks at the appalling double standard the media has for Republican and Democratic politicians, and Joshuapundit’s second place What Are Europe’s Options?, which talks about the increasingly limited range of options for a Europe facing creeping Islam within its borders.
Incidentally, with regard to Eternity Road’s article, it is worth pointing out that the press has always taken pleasure in ferreting out Democratic, as well as Republican scandals. It’s simply that, in the wake of the scandals, the press tends to be more blood-thirsty for the Republicans than for the Democrats (witness Scooter Libby’s treatment in the press versus Sandy Berger’s).
As for articles from sources other than the Watcher’s Council, first place goes to Sigmund, Carl and Alfred’s Tenured Deceit, a clear-eyed look at a sleazy L.A. Times Op-Ed questioning Israel’s right to exist, and second place to Right Wing Nation’s Tips For New Teachers, the title of which is self-explanatory.
As I say every week, and will undoubtedly say every week to come, these are superb articles and well worth the enjoyable time spent reading them. Congratulations, all!
