Watcher’s Council Nominations – ‘Legitimate Rape’ Edition

JoshuaPundit on Aug 22 2012

Ah, the Democrat strategy… (A) Find a Senate race featuring an unpopular incumbent you’re almost certain to lose, with a contested Republican primary, especially in a state with an inexpensive media market (B) Pick the least likely GOP candidate to defeat your incumbent, especially if he or she has a history of being a loose cannon and shooting his or her mouth off (c) stick big time money behind them so that they win the nomination (C) Set up a situation for the new GOP nominee to say something abysmally stupid, and then use your media lackeys to make a nationwide media firestorm out of it.

That’s how you take a almost certain Senate takeover by Republicans and turn it back into a 50-50 horserace at worst. Even better, you turn the national focus away from the economy and an incumbent Democrat president’s execrable performance in office and put it back where you want it – on abortion and the so called ‘Republican war on women’ meme. Especially when you can rely on the stupidity, shortsightedness and grubby ambition of the nominee in question to stay in the race and keep the game going until the November elections.

Talk about committing rape!

Not good for the country in the least, but good for Democrats and admirable in its deviousness. Give the Alinskyite devil his due.

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.

Council News:

I’m very proud to announce that Tom White over at VA Right! was named Blogger of the Month by the AFP news service…quite an honor, mais oui. Congrats, Tom!

This week, Right Truth, Tina Trent.Com, Ask Marion and The Pirate’s Cove took advantage of my generous offer of linkage and earned honorable mention status by sending in some killer pieces.

You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.

Simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address ( which won’t be published) anywhere in the comments section no later than Monday 6PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category.

Then just return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out Wednesday morning.

It’s a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members. while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?

So, let’s take a look and see what we have this week…

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
