The Council Has Spoken..Progressive Bar-B-Cue Edition!

The nation has had an interesting week, has it not? And this week’s Watchers Council vote was no less interesting, mainly focused as it was on the tragic events in Tucson and their highly instructive aftermath, as the Left and their allies in the media decided not to let a good crisis go to waste and attempted to blame one man’s insane actions on the usual targets – Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, the Tea party, and talk radio.
