Launching new "Weasel of the Month" segment
The 10th Edition of the Online Merriam Webster dictionary defines a weasel as a "a sneaky, untrustworthy, or insincere person".
For example, if someone would repeat a fabrication over and over again about Yukio Asano being sentenced to 15 years for waterboarding when it had very little (if anything at all) to do with it - that is a weasel.
If someone says there are 500,000 frozen embryos for embryonic cell research that are slated for destruction and conveniently forgets to research to find out that the true number is 11,000 - which are too degraded for good research anyway - that is a weasel.
If someone would say that Cheney tortures using waterboarding, yet doesn't bat an eye at the Lyndon B Johnson administration who has photo proof of waterboarding - that is a weasel.
If someone would hope to get elected and promise not to let gas price levels get nearly as high as $3.00 a gallon and it goes up to $3.20 a gallon - that's a weasel.
In fact, a lot of liberals are flat-out weasels.
Do they realize it? I think some do it intentionally. Some just follow the leader. They blindly believe that if they elect a liberal Democrat - things in Iraq will magically transform. In their mind - maybe it does.
In reality - they are weasels.
May 2007 - the first month for this segment has a weasel. It is non-other than Gil Smart at LNP. He is a first-class weasel. So far this month, his columns haven't been too weaselly. That's a good thing. Let's hope it stays that way. His track record has won him this prestigious first award.
