Watcher's Council Nominations, 4/08/08

Every week, the Watcher's Council members nominate two posts each, one from the Council members and one from outside for consideration by the whole Council. The complete list of this week's Council nominations can be found at the site of our fearless leader, the infamous Watcher of Weasels

Do take the time and check out the non-Council links..they are always rewarding.

Here's this week's lineup...enjoy!

"If You Give A Mouse A Cookie"... Accommodating Islam
Joshuapundit - There's a popular children's book out some of you may have seen called "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie..", which recounts how if you give a mouse a cookie, it will probably ask you for a glass of milk, and so on, always upping the demands.

That pretty much describes what's happening these days at America's universities when it comes to making special accommodations for the Religion Of Peace....

The Judgment Thing
The Glittering Eye - Dave points out the hypocrisy of certain leftist pundits who change with the winds of expediency and partisanship..and well said too, I might add!

In Honor of the Final Season of "Battlestar Galactica" ...
The Colossus of Rhodey - Hube presents an in-depth homage to a favorite sci-fi show,andthe philosophy behind it.

Air Hypocrisy Radio Suspends Randi Rhodes
Rhymes With Right - Greg notes, as I did myself here on site the hypocrisy of suspending Air America loudmouth Randi Rhodes for insulting a Democrat icon, but giving her a pass for calling for the assassination of a sitting president ( as well as exhorting our troop in Iraq to desert, something I personally heard on the air).

Of course, odious as Ms. Rhodes is, I must point out that if President Bush had Congress declare war as the Constitution mandates, laws like the Smith Act and the War Powers Act would have come into play and given our government a lot more leeway to deal with seditious scum like this.
Mo' bettah, says I. But I digress...

Media Fish in a Barrel
Done With Mirrors - Callimachus finds a nice juicy one in a blatant misrepresentation by the British press...a fish in a barrel indeed! Do these people have editors?

Starts Well, Ends Badly
Hillbilly White Trash - This week, Lem Calhoon does a fine job fisking another sort of fish in a barrel - an article on gun control by Thomas A. Bowden in Frontpage - and relates it to the Heller case now before the Supreme Court.

Black, White, Grey
Soccer Dad - The colors Soccer Dad is speaking of are the supposed two racially polarized Americas Pastor Wright and BarackObama speak of, but as Soccer Dad points out there are actually three ...and they are not nearly as polarized as certain race pimps would have you believe!

The Wizard of Ooze
Bookworm Room - Ms.Bookworm, in a nifty play on words, characterizes Barack Obama as a latter day Wizard of Oz, the rather ineffectual man behind the curtain. ... and enumerates the sordid details oozing out about his past and about the people around the Chosen One.

Assumptions & Conclusions About Sadr, Maliki and the Basra Offensive
Wolf Howling - GW writes an informative piece regarding Maliki's offensive in Iraq against Moqtada al-Sadr's Mahdi Army, an event of major significance that's been sadly mischaracterized.

Quote of the Day: Unsacrificed Virgins Edition
Cheat Seeking Missiles - Laer has a fascinating post this week on the subject of virginity and a new trend in some circles towards voluntary abstinence. Hmmmm!

Censorchimps: The East Texas Subspecies
The Education Wonks - Edwonks looks at the lawsuit of a Texas high school student who was sent home and threatened with suspension for wearing a 'John Edwards For President' tee shirt to school. Now, if it was me, I would have just sentenced the little bugger to write a detailed 2,500 word essay on Edwards' qualifications for the presidency. Now, that practically qualifies as cruel and unusual punishment!

Progress In Iraq a Tough Sell for Petreaus
Right Wing Nut House - Rick goes into considerable detail about why he sees the glass half empty in Iraq rather than half full. And he wants O-U-T.
