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....
CBS '60 Minutes' TV Personality, Wascally Wacist and Sleazeball Steve Krofts!!
The Noisy Room : My nominee this week is 60 Minute's Steve Kroft for not only being a
cheating slime bucket, but for also being uber paranoid of right-wing zealots catching him and being dumb enough to actually get caught. Let's also not forget he's racist - he didn't want to be seen with Harvard
educated Lisan Goines, because she was black and the differences between them would be too 'noticeable.' Good enough to dance between the sheets, but not good enough for public appearances.
An absolute Obama suck up, Kroft bragged of being best buds with Obama and how Obama actually hates Eric Holder. Now that's journalism for ya!
Oh yeah, baby
The Manhattan mistress of married '60 Minutes' newsman Steve Kroft
sent him sexy lingerie photos during their affair, but he insisted
she dress low-key 'like Laura Bush' with him in public to keep
things hush-hush, according to newly revealed texts.
A source close to Kroft's lover told The Post that the TV hotshot
was 'really paranoid about right-wing zealots finding out about
their affair' and using the tawdry details to try to destroy his
career and CBS.
The sexts between Kroft and Lisan Goines (obtained exclusively by
The Post)include a nude selfie of the lusty lawyer that she sent
to her much-older lover. Other photos show her wearing a red thong
and busting out of a black bra.
But "dress in Washington is Either professional or Laura Bush,"
Kroft messaged his illicit squeeze in advance of their September
2011 play date at the Park Hyatt on 24th and M streets in DC.
"Don't dress like Beyonce," Kroft warned the Harvard-educated
beauty, according to the source.
In addition to fearing the zealots, Kroft, 69, was "beyond
terrified" that his wife of 23 years, fellow journalist Jennet
Conant, would find out about the affair, the source added.
Kroft needed absolutely no help in destroying himself. He excelled at
it. You'd think a 69 year-old would know better. His wife is going to
literally kill him and it serves the weasel right. Now, I have to go
bleach my eyes and knock myself unconscious hoping I can forget this
Hack Writer And Rebel Without A Clue Sheldon Richman!!
The Independent Sentinel : Reason writer Sheldon Richman has some stellar weasel qualities.
First he compared American hero Chris Kyle with the mad shooter of Sandy Hook, Adam Lanza, saying Kyle 'went to a place he had no right to be, heavily armed, and murdered people who never threatened him at home.' He added that the victims were 'defenseless like Lanza's victims'.
Not satisfied with this idiocy, he out-weasled even himself with several responses to tweets. He was asked in a tweet, 'So, to be clear. You are saying that if it came down to an Iraqi or #ChrisKyle, you would rather Kyle have been killed?'
He tweeted back, several times, "If that's the only choice, yes. He invaded, trespassed."
He followed up by tweeting he was 'no kind of capitalist'.
No surprises there!
Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll!
Bookworm Room : He presides over what may be the most boorish team in the league, he's probably a Truther, and he made the worst call in Super Bowl history. None of that will change the course of the world, but he sure is weaselly.
Obama Consigliere And Puppet master Valerie Jarrett!
Virginia Right! : Valerie Jarrett for being the driver of hate behind Obama's animosity towards Israel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Western Journalism wrote:
The real questions are: Who is pushing this agenda? Who is pushing for Iran to go nuclear? And, who is so scared of Netanyahu briefing Congress and the American people on what Iran is up to?
The answer is Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s Rasputin. This is where the anger from the White House is coming from.
Most people know she was born in Iran. This in itself does not disqualify her from advising the president, but it does open her agenda to scrutiny. There have been reports that she has been secretly negotiating with Iran on the nuclear issue, but the White House has vehemently denied it.
I, for one, don’t trust a thing this administration says.
Now, the Jerusalem Post is reporting that the Obama administration has already given Iran eighty percent of what it has demanded in the negotiations. The “deal” to be reached will leave Iran within months of going nuclear if they decide to move forward. All of the centrifuges will remain under their control.
Well, there it is. What a despicable group of Weasels...ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!
